Agent Unconfiguration for Microsoft IIS 6.0

If you no longer require Agent for Microsoft IIS 6.0 to protect a particular web site, you can unconfigure the agent from that web site. Furthermore, if you want to uninstall the agent, you must first unconfigure it from all the web sites for which it was configured.

Note –

This task does not apply to deployments where Agent for Microsoft IIS 6.0 protects Microsoft Office SharePoint or Outlook Web Access. For such instructions, see Microsoft Office SharePoint and Outlook Web Access: Unconfiguring the Agent.

Perform the following steps to unconfigure the agent for Microsoft IIS 6.0 from a web site. Make sure that you use the agent configuration file specific to the web site you want to unconfigure. If you need to unconfigure the agent from multiple web sites, you must repeat these steps for each of the web sites.

  1. Stop the web site for which you have configured the agent.

  2. Stop the application pool to which the web site belongs.

  3. Change to the directory PolicyAgent-base\iis6\bin

  4. Run the following VB script to unconfigure the agent (be aware that the command is case sensitive):

    cscript.exe IIS6admin.vbs -unconfig defaultConfig
