Open Powershell on the IIS server, Run the following:
add-pssnapin WebAdministration

Open in new window


Then run this:
set-webconfigurationproperty "system.applicationHost/sites/site[@name='Default Web Site']/application[@path='/']/virtualDirectory[@path='/']" -name username -value ''user@domain.com"
set-webconfigurationproperty "system.applicationHost/sites/site[@name='Default Web Site']/application @path='/']/virtualDirectory[@path='/']" -name password -value 'password'

Open in new window

Give this a go.  Specify the credentials you want to use at the top and the website name, and fire away.

Import-Module -Name "web*"

$taregtUser="donstupid@wizdev.local"
$taregtPWD="2stupid4u"
$siteName='"Default Web Site"'
$pathToSite='system.applicationhost/sites/site[@name='+$siteName+']'
$pathToValues=$pathtosite+'/application[@path="/"]/virtualdirectory[@path="/"]'

Get-WebConfiguration $pathToSite | select *
set-WebConfigurationproperty $pathToValues -name username -value $taregtUser
set-WebConfigurationproperty $pathToValues -name password -value $taregtPWD

Open in new window

For both solutions, I am getting this error:
The term 'Get-WebConfiguration' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.

The term 'Get-WebConfiguration' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.
Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

To me it looks like the "WebAdministration" module is installed...When I run Get-Module -ListAvailable

PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-Module -ListAvailable

ModuleType Name                      ExportedCommands
---------- ----                      ----------------
Manifest   ActiveDirectory           {}
Manifest   ADRMS                     {}
Manifest   AppLocker                 {}
Manifest   BestPractices             {}
Manifest   BitsTransfer              {}
Manifest   PSDiagnostics             {}
Manifest   ServerManager             {}
Manifest   TroubleshootingPack       {}
Manifest   WebAdministration         {}

Thanks, I needed to close the PS terminal and re-open it. Then I was able to bring in the WebAdministration module.
