How to manage general settings for IIS application pool using command line utility?

IIS application pools


General settings for IIS Application pool assignment and placement policy can be configured using "%plesk_cli%\server_pref.exe" utility with the following options:

 --set-iis-app-pool-settings  -iis-app-pool-mode <shared|mixed|dedicated>

To enable dedicated IIS app pool for a specific customer:

"%plesk_cli%\client_pref.exe" --set-iis-app-pool-settings <login_name> -iis-app-pool-turned-on true

To enable dedicated IIS app pool for an individual subscription:

"%plesk_bin%\subscription.exe" --set-iis-app-pool-settings <subscription_name> -iis-app-pool-turned-on true

Note: Plesk does not have ability to change application pools for different domains under a single subscription.
