Hey guys

We have an SBS 2011 server with IIS 7.5 i believe. We are moving services to a new server 2012 R2 server, which i believe is 8.0

Is there a way to full export the settings from the old server to the new one?

You will need to export the application pool and the site from IIS 7.5 and Import these on to IIS8.0. Following the simple procedure below

To Export the Application Pools on IIS 7.5
Run the command below from the command prompt using the account with admin privilege

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list apppool /config /xml > c:\apppools.xml

To Export all your website:
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list site /config /xml > c:\sites.xml

On IIS8.0
Import the Application Pools:
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /in < c:\apppools.xml

Import the website:
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add site /in < c:\sites.xml

Hope this helps

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Maybe it would be helpful to tell us what sites/app pool's you want to move?   Is there just a custom built site you want to move?

I would check out the Web Deploy tools from Microsoft.  You can do a IIS/site migration 2 ways.

1.  Install Web Deploy on both the old and the new server and do a direct migration.  This works best if there is an AD Domain in yoru infrastructure.

2. Install Web Deploy on both servers.  On the old server, you export each site.  The site/code/config all ends up in a ZIP file.  On the new server, you import the sites.  There is an import/export function in Web Deploy.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
