I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year.

Spotted on Mike Volodarsky's blog is an announcement that the Health Model for IIS 7.0 has been published on Microsoft TechNet. This describes the various error conditions that IIS 7.0 (and related services, like the Worker Process Activation Service) might encounter.

If you are familiar with Microsoft Operations Manager, then you'll know that these health models form the basis for developing a management pack for that particular service. And right on cue, a beta of the Management Pack for IIS 7.0 (MOM 2005) has been released on Microsoft Connect.
