     Hi everyone.

     Its a simple question, how migrate a FTP server on IIS 6.0 to IIS 7.0 or 7.5

    In the past, i use web deployment tool to migrate a Web server from IIS 6.0 to IIS 7.0 i dont have a trouble with that, but with a FTP server its other thing. In this forums i read a deployment tool dont suppport FTP migrations.

    I have a virtual server (Hyper V :) ) with Win 2008 server Std 32 bits to make a test a migration

    So, all ideas and suggestions welcome !!

    In this moment i do a test with Metabase explorer IIS 6.0, i create a mbk file from my server 2003, install the tool kit IIS in my server win 2008, open metabase explorer in win 2008, import key mbk file, and copy-paste of  w3svc file from iis 6.0 to iis 7.0, when this copy - paste finish, open IIS 7 and i dont see the sites, but, in metabase explorer i can see the sites.

    The other test, i create a xml file from IIS 6, but i dont know how to import to IIS 7 ????, please help

    Any suggestions, ideas, comment, etc, to make this migration from FTP server IIS 6.0 to Win 2008 IIS 7.0 or 7.5 I would appreciate

    Regards 

     Teryus

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting.

    Unfortunately, I am not aware of any tool can do this task so far. FTP7.5 is a brand-new FTP service, the metakey of new FTP site is different with the old FTP site’s. One under LM/W3SVC, the other one under LM/MSFTPSVC,  this is also the reason why Web Deployment Tool can't do this task for you. You probably need to manually create the new FTP sites, I'm sorry for not having better answer for you.

    Below are some articles about FTP7.5, hope helps
