To restart IIS using the IISReset command-line utility

  1. From the Start menu, click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd, and click OK.
  3. At the command prompt, type
    iisreset /noforce
    .
  4. IIS attempts to stop all services before restarting. The IISReset command-line utility waits up to one minute for all services to stop. If the services cannot be stopped within one minute, all IIS services are terminated, and IIS restarts.
