Recovering from an Interruption in the Migration Process
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
If you received no error messages while migrating the Web site content and configuration, you can proceed to one of the following sections in this section:
Migrating Apache-Specific Extensions if any of your Web sites contain dynamic content.
Configuring IIS 6.0 if all of your Web sites contain static content.
If you received an error message while running the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool, do the following:
Determine the cause of the error and resolve the problem.
Restart the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool in recovery mode.
In addition to resolving migration errors, you can use the tool in recovery mode to:
Perform another migration if the majority of the settings are the same.
For example, you might run the tool to migrate a specific Web site on a Web server that hosts multiple Web sites. You can migrate subsequent Web sites by running the tool in recovery mode and change only the name of the Web site to be migrated. The remainder of the settings remain unchanged.
Perform the actual migration of Web site content and configuration after a trial migration.
You can perform a trial migration of the Web site and content by supplying all information except the Web sites to migrate. You can use this method to validate the majority of the migration settings. You can subsequently run the tool in recovery mode.
Provide a scripted environment for automating the Apache to IIS 6.0 Migration Tool migration process.
The tool creates an answer file that is used by the recovery process, which you can edit to automate the tool. The answer file has the naming convention of AIISMT_session name_Recovery.txt, where session_name is the session name for the migration.
