We are currently load balancing two web servers using F5's Big IP. Everything is working fine however we frequently update and add new virtual directories and it's a major pain to copy the data and settings from one web server to the other (double the work... Actually tripple when you consider our failover site).
In additon, each virtual directory uses a unique AppPool and User for process separation and usage tracking.
My question is this: Can we replicate our IIS settings including AppPools from one machine to the other somehow and what would be the best way to do this in a workgroup environment?
The research I've done on EE has suggested IISCnfg and RoboCopy might work (we could write a batch program and run it after we update one web server) but will IISCNFG copy the AppPool data? It probably wouldn't copy the users, so we'd have to create them manually on the "remote Machine".
I've also seen DFS as an option, but I can't seem to figure out how to force replication in a workgroup environment.
Is there another option without having to purchase a third party software or put our web servers in a domain?
Logparser is the smartest tool I have ever used in parsing IIS log files and there are many interesting things I wanted to share with everyone one of the real-world scenario from my current project.
