You can create shares on the server and use something like ROBOCOPY to transfer over the files. I am assuming the site is basically static in nature and no scripts are running.

SharedConfig is awesome. IIS had come along way since v6.x
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Dmitri FarafontovLinux Systems AdminCommented:
In IIS 6.0, synchronizing and replicating configuration between servers was difficult because no built-in functionality existed. Although the server administrator could use the script iiscnfg.vbs to copy configuration between servers, this would still leave ACLs on the metabase and machine-specific paths like the Windows directory to be fixed.

can you give me guide on how to do it @Dmitri?
Dmitri FarafontovLinux Systems AdminCommented:
Something like this (https://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/73f66ff1-be38-4850-8965-739004acd641.mspx?mfr=true). Also like I mentioned if your site is pretty static with no dynamic scripts. I would just copy over the files and place them into the new document root on the destination server.
