IIS 7 configuration comparison



Is there a way to compare two IIS 7 instances. One manual way is to open two remote desktop connections and open each and every setting in IIS and compare side by side but I do not want that. I want if there is a file which we can compare to know if all settings are same on both IIS 7 rather than opening every setting form GUI and then comparing.

You could run the following command on each machine and then use a file comparison tool to check for differences:

     %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\APPCMD list config  /config:* > config.txt

This will dump the entire configuration store including default and inherited values.  If you just want to compare explicitly set values you can omit the '/config:*' element.
