I'm trying to schedule a task in the Task Scheduler on Windows Server 2016. The task is to reset a website in IIS. It's supposed to run every 5 minutes.
Here is the action:
"appcmd.exe" start site /site.name:Default Web Site
This keeps giving me a 0x57 error.
I know that this works because I've verified it:
"appcmd.exe" start site /site.name:testsite
Therefore, it seems to me that the problem is with Default Web Site. I'm guessing appcmd doesn't know how to handle the spaces in the name. I tried this but this doesn't work either:
"appcmd.exe" start site /site.name:"Default Web Site"
Does anyone know how I would set the website to be restarted as the Default Web Site? Thanks.
