Configure Application Isolation Modes

You can run Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 in one of two modes: worker process isolation mode or IIS 5.0 isolation mode. Worker process isolation mode is the default mode the Web server runs in after a clean installation of the Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003 operating system. IIS 5.0 isolation mode is the default mode when you upgrade to IIS 6.0 from a previous version of IIS.
