IIS syncronisation tool vs NLB


Cool new Features with IIS 7 for a new Scom Site ( Webbased ) I had this problem with a Website NLB. SO I tried to test this new tool.

IIS syncronisation tool – tech preview released

For all those wondering what options you have post-Application Center 2000 for synchronisation (let alone load balancing etc), the IIS Product Group has released a technical preview of a new tool: msdeploy.exe. This tool can sync or migrate:

  • IIS 7.0 configuration settings
  • Web content
  • Registry keys and values
  • SSL certificates

It supports moving configuration, content, SSL certificates and other types of data associated with a web server. You can choose to sync a single site or the entire web server. Because we know that one tool can never ‘automagically’ guess what your application relies on, we’ve tried to be pretty flexible and powerful – you can customize exactly what you want to sync using a manifest file. You can also skip sites or other objects, or you can perform regular expression replacements during a sync (like changing the home directory on the destination machine).

The goal of the tool is to help you keep servers in sync, to make deployment easier and also to help with migrating to new versions of IIS. You could use a sync on two machines in a web farm, for example. Or maybe you need to move to a new server of the same version, you can use this tool. Of course, we also enable you to do a migration from IIS 6.0 to 7.0.

Download the x86 version or the x64 version of our Technical Preview 1.
