I am looking for an SCCM query that will display all the servers in my organization that are running IIS and display the name or "website identification description" of each website that exists on each of those servers that have IIS running on it.

So, running the query will need to show me

server name, website name (website identification description), website ip address, website home directory local path

If someone would be so kind as to provide an SCCM 2007 query I can use to get that information, it would be much appreciated.

"server name, website name (website identification description), website ip address, website home directory local path"  So, SCCM doesn't collect this information about your IIS data natively.  I had to do something similar in my environment...

The method I used was to create a custom package (using WISE Installer... you could aslo use VBscript or some other packaging tool).  Anyway, the program in the package would basically query the system for IIS root dir, Website name, etc.  I would save this information in a variable and write a custom MIF file (for reporting) based on what I discovered about the web server.  

I then created an advertisement using the package to all of my IIS servers (specail collection based on IIS service running).  I ran this advertisement on a schedule (once a week) to make sure that I get updated information about the web server...

To see the data regarding these webservers, I use the built-in MIF status report for this advertisement.  When I view this report, I can now see the items that you mention about IIS configuration on my servers.

So, the solution I used was to extend the inventory by using a custom package and built in reports.

Note:  I leveraged the appcmd.exe in my custom package to help me query IIS settings...  http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/114/getting-started-with-appcmdexe/

Thanks for pointing me in a specific direction. I was hoping for something easier but I will research your suggestion and move down that pathway.
