How to restore IIS and all it's content to different box with same server name without IIS backup
Posted on 2010-08-31
MY PDC and IIS running Windows 2003 SP2 experienced hardware failure and can't be brought back online. What I like to do is to bring up another server with the same name, then restore IIS to it. The new server will not be a DC. I'll set up another DC and seize all FSMO roles from the crashed PDC. I don't have a IIS backup, but do have backup of all folders and their content on tape that I can restore. Is it possible to restore IIS to my new server by restoring the folders from tape to the new server? If I can, please provide me with the steps on how to do it. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
