I desperately need to import my settings IIS 7 to another server IIS 7. I exported and tried to import using the appcmd but i receive this error

"ERROR ( message:Failed to add duplicate collection element "Default Web Site".

I was told to change the site ID to a different value and rename the site. But I need it to be under the actual site id 1 under "default web site"

Is there anyway to overwrite the default site?
