If you want to use tool , then Download Migration tool >>>

Also see the details you can see there.. Benefits and Pros n Cons. It will not copy the ACL, COM+ etc.

2nd Option:
If you have less sites on your server, then export the websites from IIS and save the files. Copy these same files to the new server and create IIS websites using these configuration files. You will get exact website configuration.

You need to copy all of the webcontent separately in this method. Also SSL need to export and import. But this may be easier.
ACLs will need to match as per your requirement in both of the cases.

Great, I would probably use option 2 because I need to migrate around 340 website in 22 chunks. Although I forgot to mention that it is going to be environment with new server names and IPs. Could you give me more detailed description for this please?
It should be as detailed as possible, please. I need to give this to complete IIS new comers on basis of look at the guide and click there and do that. I would greatly appreciate anything even in more general scale which could be than amended to make it more specific. Many thanks in advance. M

IIS Server Migration : You need to consider few things
Websites, Com+ , SSLs, Server wide settings, Environment variables , run time variables

First you can make a record of all these , Copy complete content server wise as it is to new server, because website will look for its content and all.
Create a backup Of IIS Metabase WITH PASSWORD. Copy that metabase backup to next new Server and there import it. It will create all website at once. As data is copied you should be viewable.

When you will do it, You may see error, Do not forget to change the IUSR name as of new server , Change it on Web site container, so it will go for all of websites.

You can do the rest easily  , like SSL , and COM+. COM+ is not in much use these days but could be existing in your env.
Create same env variables. Install the softwares exactly in same directory as it was in old server.

Hope this will help.
