Installing the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
The IIS 6.0 Migration Tool and its accompanying user documentation are included in the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Resource Kit Tools,which can be installed by running IIS60rkt.exe from the Microsoft Download Center. There is no setup program for the migration tool; you need only copy the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool to the target server. You do not need to install any software on the source server. To avoid installing the entire contents of the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit Tools onto your target server, install the tools onto a workstation first, and then copy the migration tool to the target server.
Install the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool by completing the following steps:
Install the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Resource Kit Tools by running IIS60rkt.exe from the Microsoft Download Center.
Create a folder on the target server to contain the migration tool.
Copy the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool (Iismt.exe) from Program Files\IIS Resources\IIS 6.0 Migration Tool, on the computer listed in Step 1, to the folder on the target server that you created in Step 2.
Verify that the migration tool operates correctly by typing iismt at the command prompt.
This starts the migration tool and displays Help for the tool only. The migration process does not actually begin.
