Backing Up the Target IIS 6.0 Server
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
Before you enable client access to the target server, perform a complete image backup of the target server. Performing this image backup provides you with a point-in-time snapshot of the Web server. If you need to restore the target server in the event of a failure, you can use this backup to restore the Web server to a known configuration.
|Do not continue with the migration process unless you have a successful backup of the entire target server. Otherwise, you can lose Web sites, applications, or data that you migrated to the target server.|
