How to restart iis in vista

I am working on website on Windows Server 2003. Here I have some trouble with IIS reset. I want to restart my IIS. As I made some changes in the server, so I want to reset it let the settings take effect. I has put a some schedule task in the serve. Before it was working great. But from sometime it is not functioning properly. In the Event viewer the IIS is not showing good results. I want to ask what are the other ways to to reset the IIS.

Re: How to restart iis in vista

Here is an solution by which you can make your old task to work again. It is possible that the unexpected behavior occurred due to misconfiguration. By doing some setting in the schedule task you can restore back your old settings. Follow the below listed instructions :
Go to Start Menu > Control Panel.
Open schedule task by double clicking on that.
Right click on the task and select properties. Select the Task tab now.
Recheck the command in the run box.
Recheck that correct user is mentioned in the Run box. Look weather you had listed the user name in doamin\username format.
Give the password if necessary.
Select the enable tab and set the time and dates.
Now exit it.

Re: How to restart iis in vista

I am listing parameters you can use to start, stop and reboot your IIS. You can use this in command line or batch tool only. Keep a note of it you can try it any time for different purpose. The application that will run the command is Iisreset.ext. The sample synstax is something like this - iisreset [ computer name ]. In the last box [...] you will need to add the below command.
  • /restart - It will stop and restart all running services.
  • /start - Runs the autostart configured Internet services.
  • /stop - Stops all services.
  • /reboot - Restarts the system
  • /rebootonerror - If there is any error while using the restart ,start or stop the sytem will restart.
  • /noforce - if the stop command fails this will prohibit the internet service to stop.
  • /status - display current status of all internet services.

Re: How to restart iis in vista

there are two ways to restart your IIS. First by IIS manager and second by the command utility. For first step .i.e to reset is by IIS manager launch IIS manger in your sytem. Select All task by right clicking on your local computer and then click IIS. Select restart IIS. For the second step i.e.to reset IIS by IIS manger go to start menu > run. In the box type cmd and hit enter. In the command prompt window type iisreset /noforce computername and press enter. IIS always tries to stop all the services before restarting.
