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 Shaun, I will try it this weekend. Is there another way or a manual way to copy the data over if the tool fails?
Shaun VermaakTechnical SpecialistCommented:
Yes. You literally copy the data and recreate the site, hoping that you get all the settings over. I would not do it manually

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
