Migrates websites from 2008R2 to 2016

Need to Migrate IIS7 (2008 R2) websites to IIS 10 (2016). Is there a free tool to do this?

Anyone tried this - https://www.assistanz.com/steps-to-migrate-the-websites-from-iis-7-5-to-iis-10/

Yes. It works fine in most situations

You can also check IIS easy migration tool (IEMT)

Before applying on production systems it is better to prepare test lab and apply the solution and test.

Thanks yousufali I tried  the IEMT but it did not work on Server 2016

Thanks Shaun, I will try it this weekend. Is there another way or a manual way to copy the data over if the tool fails?

Hi Shaun, I tried the tool and it did copy the data but only from the default inetpub folder. We have tons of other websites under a different folder called as Websites. Is there a different command to include that location to the backup? Command I used from the website was

msdeploy -verb:sync  -source:metakey=lm/w3svc/1 -dest:package=c:\Site1.zip > WebDeployPackage.log
