Migrating IIS Web Servers

Medium Priority

Hi Everyone,

What's the best way to migrate IIS Web servers?  I need to migrate an IIS 6.0 to an IIS 7.5 .  Source server is Windows 2003 with many web sites, destination server is Windows 2008.  

I know there's a couple of Microsoft tools for migrating, but can sites also be migrated manually, such either a backup/restore or manually moving over the folders?

Thanks in advance,

Theo

If you have many website than migrating it manually will create a lot a tedious ask,
http://www.iis.net/download/webdeploy
#Cross check the web user by which you are running application as It has to be created again under the new server if it is not by IUSR_machine-name

I'm currently testing the Web Deploy tol and having problems with it.  It's only bringing over some of the sites.  I'm losing faith in it fast.

If I copy over manually, it is just the physical folder structure I have to copy?  

Thanks,

Theo
