I'm a software engineer but a client wants me to move the http server and ftp server from Windows 2000 Server to Windows Server 2003.
For the http server, since most of their applications are done in .Net, I would assume that this would require that I copy c:\inetpub\wwwroot from one PC to another, and then setup the IIS virtual directories on this new machine. Is this correct?
What about the ftp server? How would I be able to transfer that from one server to the other?

Thanks.

You could use the MS tool for IIS6 migration. It will migrate from IIS4, IIS5 or IIS6
