The IISSYNC utility is used to synchronize Internet Information Server (IIS) metabase and Transaction Server packages on one Node with IIS on a Microsoft Cluster Server on the other Node.

This article contains a list of status codes that are most often encountered and what the possible or probable cause of the status code is.
