aspnet_regiis

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by amitavabardhan, Jan 12, 2006.

  1. I don't know if this is the right forum for me to post my question but I just
    hope somebody answers my question.

    Is there any way that I can retrieve the password of the aspnet account. I
    know that the password is machine generated but is there any method to
    retrieve the password?

    Can I change the password manually in the machine.config file? If so what
    can be the implications of this? One thing for sure is that I know manually
    changing the password will not synchronize the password with the IIS metabase
    but can aspnet_regiis with the i switch be used to do this synchronisation?

    Or for that matter does aspnet_regiis -i utility change the password for the
    aspnet account and synchronize it with the metabase?

    Too many questions!!!! but just hope somebody have answers for it...
