    Hi Ronit,

    You can try to use Share Configuration.

    An innovative new feature called Shared Configuration enables Administrators to place IIS configuration on a shared volume (network file share or shared disk) and point multiple Web servers at that single configuration file. Web content can also be shared on a network volume across multiple servers, enabling updates of both configuration and content to automatically apply to all Web connected to the share. All of the IIS configuration and management tools, from the command line tool AppCmd.exe to the admin tool IIS Manager, work seamlessly against IIS configuration whether local or shared.

    Reference:

    Centralized Web Farm Management

    Regards

    I have configured shared configuration on IIS.

    But I am looking for another solution, like Windows Admin Manager for IIS.

    Maybe something like IIS remote admin would be useful to you.

    Your only hope is Windows Admin Center, but it does not yet support IIS, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/manage/windows-admin-center/understand/faq 

    Before Microsoft adds IIS to the big picture, you probably have limited options.

    Stop giving hope there Lex. I can't see Microsoft adding any additional functionality for IIS for anything. :)
