Multiple IIS servers, each having their own process identity

Hello!

From default, the ASPNET user is giving the process identity for the ASP.NET
runtime environment of IIS, however it's possible to change the user by
modifying the <processModel> element in the machine.config file.

Is it possible to have multiple IIS servers running, each with their own
user specified for the process identity or to specify the process identity
specifically for each of the ASP.NET WebForms applications run by a singular
IIS server?
Best regards,

IIS5 had the limitation of only one copy of the worker process (per CPU,
but forget that for now). IIS6 allows an arbitrary number of worker processes
and each can have its own identity. These are called Application Pools. That's
one major reason why IIS6 is highly encouraged over IIS5.

Thanks for Brock's informative inputs.

Hi Henrik,

As Brock has mentioned, for IIS5.X , our asp.net application are limited to
the global processModel idenitity setting and hard to separate multi
applications' process identity configuration. However, in IIS6, the new
application process isolation model allow us to configure separate process
identities for separate applicaiton pool and associate one or multiple
ASP.NET application with a certain application pool.
