Thanks for the tip...when I try to run this I get: ERROR <Message: The WAS service is not available - try starting the service first.> What exactly is the WAS service?

THanks

Hey Jerry. The WAS Service (Windows Process Activation) is new with Server 2008. It was a way to consolidate the IIS processes and allow you to run them without the dependancy on HTTP.

As for your error, the first thing I would do is verify that the WAS service is actually running. Just go look at your services and verify Windows Process Activation service is running. If it is, then the likely cause of your error is that you are not running the appcmd command from an elevated command prompt. You can do this by going to Start-->All Programs-->Accessories. Right click command prompt and select 'Run as Administrator.' Now try running appcmd list wp from there and it should work.
