I'm not sure if I'm not thinking clearly or what, but I'm having difficulty adding the AppPool identity to the local IIS_IUSRS group via PowerShell. It's only 2 lines to add a user to a local group, whether it's a domain user or local user. I've used the
same steps as I have for other scripts to perform the same action, just not for an AppPool identity:
$Group = [ADSI]"WinNT://$ComputerName/IIS_IUSRS,group"
$User = "IIS APPPOOL\sometestsite.example.com"
I've changed the backslash to forward slash, hard-coded the user, you name it. I gotta imagine this is something simple that I'm missing. I can't use net localgroup because the names are going to be longer than 20 characters. Anybody have any idea what
I'm missing? Any advice or feedback would be appreciated, thanks all!
