Recovering IIS 6 config files from a dead W2k3 server

Hi all,

Today I came into my office to find our test / play IIS6 W2k3 sever had died, specifically the motherboard fried.

We have a good backup of the hard drive from the dead server, and the hard drive still works, so is there any way to pull the IIS config files from the old hard drive, and then move them and the sites to a new w2k3 server.

Thanks,

Neil

We got lucky, we found a exact match for the motherboard on ebay so were able to get the old hard drive up again.

Now with the heat off we tried Dave's idea, and yes, it sort of worked. IIS complained, and the sites would not run, but, they were all there, and most of the info was, so it was just a case of going into each one and editing it.

Now to find a better way to back up.
