IIS 7 on Server Core

Manage IIS7 from Vista

You need to:

  • Download the management console from iis.net (owned by Microsoft): http://www.iis.net/expand/IISManager
  • Install the IIS management service: start /w ocsetup IIS-ManagementService
  • Switch this registry key to 1: EnableRemoteManagement (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WebManagement\Server) on the server to allow remote management for IIS
  • Start the wmsvc service : net start wmsvc

Import a certificate

The MMC certificate console can't add certificate to remote store (pfx). You will need to do it locally, using certutil command line:
certutil -addstore MY mycertificate.pfx

The MY argument is to specify the computer store
