How to get the IUSR and IWAM user account passwords on an IIS server

Edit the script, C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\Adsutil.vbs. Change this line:

IsSecureProperty = True

to:

IsSecureProperty = False

Now you can find the IUSR account password by using the Adsutil.vbs tool. Open up command prompt and navigate to C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts. Run either of the following commands:

cscript.exe adsutil.vbs get w3svc/anonymoususerpass
cscript.exe adsutil.vbs get w3svc/wamuserpass

to display the IUSR and IWAM account passwords respectively.
