Enabling remote connections to IIS 7.x Management Service by using Powershell


Is it possible to execute the “Enable Remote Connections” step from this instructions (“Remote Administration for IIS Manager”) using Powershell?


From this page on IIS Remote Mgmt, it appears you will need to add a registry key:

reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WebManagement\Server /v EnableRemoteManagement /t REG_DWORD /d 1

To add a new regkey wiht powershell, try:

New-Item -path Registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WebManagement\Server\EnableRemoteManagement -PropertyType DWord -Value 1

Please note this is not tested.
