78 minutes - you will learn how to fully leverage the new reliability and management features in IIS 6.0. We’ll also explore IIS 5.0 compatibility mode and configure a poorly behaved unmanaged C++ ISAPI web application to automatically recycle to maintain availability while it is rewritten in managed code. We’ll learn how to programmatically modify the XML Metabase or recover the Metabase, in the event that it becomes corrupted. Finally, you’ll see how you can increase the reliability and uptime of your web server by replacing complex ISAPIs with much more maintainable ASP.NET Web applications. We’ll rewrite an application as a managed ASP.NET application and obsolete the unreliable program.
