    I have corrupt machinekeys.  is it possible to remove and reinstall IIS to recreate the keys without re-configuring all my websites?  I have many.

    Would just creating new machine keys work for you. This script is specific to server farms to make it easy to sync the key but I would think it will work for what you need as well.

    Hi OULIWEI,

    As long as you backup the configuration file, you could just reinstall IIS to recreate the new machinekey. To backup the configuration file, you could use this command:

     

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe add backup "My Backup Name"
