I'm trying to create an app pool with the name of '' using the puppetlabs iis module -

It's throwing an error saying 'name is not a valid web site name at...'

If I remove the period, '.', it works. Is there a way for me to use it in the name without it throwing an error?

Figured it out:

open files lib/puppet/type/iis_application_pool.rb and /lib/puppet/type/iis_site.rb, and /lib/puppet/type/iis_application.rb in the module find the errors "name is not a valid web site name" change the regex to: ^[\\.a-zA-Z0-9\\-\\_'\\s]+$
