Microsoft Web Deployment Tool - Tech Preview
Microsoft has created the Microsoft Web Deployment Tool, which provides deployment and migration support for Internet Information Services versions 6.0 and 7.0. This tool incorporates many features that enable web server administrators to deploy, sync and migrate sites, including configuration, content, SSL certificates and other types of data associated with a Web server. This tool can be used on Windows Server 2008 and Internet Information Services 7.0 as well as Windows Server 2003 and Internet Information Services 6.0.
- Synchronization and Snapshot of IIS 6.0/IIS 7.0.
The sync operation provides administrators with a way to quickly synchronize a site or server and deploy changes to existing sites and servers.
- Migration from IIS 6.0
- Analysis of IIS 6.0 Installed Features
- Troubleshooting and Validation Features
For validating an operation, the -whatif flag allows administrators to see what actions would happen when they perform an operation.
Sounds like a great tool! I haven't tried it out myself, but it looks quite interesting.
