I'm planning a migration from IIS 6 to IIS 7 and need to test the MSDEPLOY tool. I'm trying to get the dependencies. I have the default site (ID 1), but also tried other ID's with the same result shown below.

======================
C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy>msdeploy -verb:getDependencies -source
:metakey=lm/w3svc/1691488755
Error: Object of type 'metaKey' and path 'lm/w3svc/1691488755' cannot be created
.
Error: The metabase key '/lm/w3svc/1691488755' could not be found.
Error: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
Error count: 1.

=====================

Any clues of the issue here?

Same thing:


C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy>msdeploy -verb:getDependencies,alltrig
ger -source:metakey=lm/w3svc/1
Error: Object of type 'metaKey' and path 'lm/w3svc/1' cannot be created.
Error: The metabase key '/lm/w3svc/1' could not be found.
Error: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
Error count: 1.

The server where I'm running this has not been rebooted since I installed webdeploy. I'm waiting for it to be rebooted tonight. Do you think that may be an issue?

When you start the msdeploy tool you get prompted on which account to use, it has a check box that restricts the user from using admin privileges. I unchecked the box, and problems solved. Thanks.
