I want to migrate/move my current IIS server to a  new Server and I'm hope to do this without have to setup each site manually.  Is there a way to just move or migrate my folders, settings etc?

You can give a try on some other non productivity servers may be in testing servers, don't try it on a production server, just a suggestion.

One question in the case of my FTP sites, the FTP is located  c:\inetpub\ftproot but my sites are virtual and they are located on another server.  Do I need to point that tool to the other server that the FTP folder sits on?  All my sites are on a share on a  different server.  It connects but when I hit gather its telling me not found?  OK I'm now thinking is there a way to just copy the structure?

I did just that and strangely enough,  When it finally finishes it's saying the following:
FTP Logins on 1:Default FTP Site - 13
Site: Default Web Site
***Sites:1
Im trying to move regular sites...
were you logged on to the ftp  when you migrated?

Author

Commented:
no but I started there.  I'll try this again tomorrow.  The new server is still updating and I can't do anything until it's done.  But what do you suggest to get my websites?

Author

Commented:

If I try to run Mdepoloy I'm getting access denied? the account is an admim on the box?  Does this need to be run on the IIS 7 box?

Was only able to get the FTP sites?? Once these are migrated is my old stuff not going to work anymore or not until I make this live?

I found the msdeploy moved my website most efffiently.  I did try to use the other migration tool which did work but it only moved 3 of my FTP sites and I had to wind up doing that manually.  My suggestion is MSdeploy for websites
