One of the driving forces behind the development of the IIS Administration API was Nano Server, a new headless variant of Windows Server 2016. This API allows us to provide a web based management UI. This post will cover the experience of getting IIS Administration up and running on Nano Server.
Previously we announced that we are developing a new REST API for administering IIS. Now, the Microsoft IIS Administration API is having its first preview release. The preview can be obtained by visiting https://manage.iis.net.
