Move/Migrate IIS v6 to IIS V 7 on new server

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?

WellingtonISAuthor Commented:

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
