2008 R1 IIS 7 to 2012 R2 IIS 8 - Migration

Hi all.

We are in the process of preparing a new 2012 R2 server deployment in our organization.  Before it goes into production there are of course many things to take care of and migrate.

I need to migrate a handful of websites to our new server.
I have read in cases it must be done manually.... and some indicate there are tools or methods to do this?

Please advise thanks!

You can use IIS Webdeploy to handle this and the dependencies.

Web Deploy works by packaging the web applications and/or site’s content, configuration, databases (if required), SSL certificates and even GA assemblies to a zip file which can be copied over to the destination server.

You would then run Web Deploy on the destination server to import the package file to get the configuration in place on the destination server.  

Web Deploy can be used to migrate web servers from IIS 6 to IIS7 and IIS 8.

Steps to export:

1. Open IIS 7.0 Manager on Current Server
2. Right click on the server name, select Deploy and click on Export Server Package
3. Select all the managed components you want.

Steps to import:
1. Open IIS 8.0 Manager on the destination server
2. Right click on the server name, select Deploy and click on Import Server or Site Package
3. Browse to the exported zip file you copied over and select it
4. Click Next

Give it a shot,
