I have IIS6 FTP installed on Windows2003 and I would like to migrate whole FTP configuration onto IIS7 FTP Windows 2008 R2 standard. What I have done so far was trying to migrate offline no success and online along with MSdeploy enforced using windows remote management service and msdeploy.exe. I've done "push" migration by issusing this command:msdeploy -verb:sync -source:metakey=lm
/msftpsvc -dest:metakey=lm\msftpsvc,computername=x.y.z.y,username=xxxxx
or,password=xxxx -whatif > msdeploysyncnew.log and it seems to be working but when I exclude switch -whatif (which is a simulation of what could happen)I get this error message:
Error: (11/11/2010 3:36:08 PM) An error occurred when the request was processed
on the remote computer. Source is my IIS6 2003 server and destination win2008 IIS7
Error: Attempt to perform an unauthorized operation on file 'C:\Windows\system32
\LogFiles\Scm\SCM.EVM'.
Error: Access to the path 'C:\Windows\system32\LogFiles\Scm\SCM.EVM' is denied.
Error count: 1. Please advise.

Your basic problem is that migration from iis6 to iis7 isn't supported:

http://msmvps.com/blogs/bernard/archive/2008/01/24/microsoft-web-deployment-tool-aka-iis-7-migration-tool-with-bonus-features.aspx

Last sentence, first paragraph:

For FTP, it does not support migration to the new out-of-band IIS 7 ftp package and etc.

This is because of some huge security changes in the two models.  Your best bet is to manually rebuild the site in IIS7.  You can use copy tools, such as robocopy, to get security at the file level moved correctly.
