Deploying the Target Server
Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
You must install Windows Server 2003 on the target Web server before you can migrate the Web sites and applications. In addition to installing Windows Server 2003, you must install and configure IIS 6.0 on the target server. To follow the process described in this section, install Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0 with the default options.
You must also configure the target server to run in worker process isolation mode or in IIS 5.0 isolation mode. Run IIS in IIS 5.0 isolation mode only when a Web site or application cannot run in worker process isolation mode. If there are no incompatibilities, configure IIS to run in worker process isolation mode to utilize the benefits of IIS 6.0 features.
Figure 6.3 illustrates the process for deploying the target server.
Figure 6.4 Deploying the Target Server
If you have already installed Windows Server 2003 on the target server, and you have already installed and configured IIS 6.0 on the target server, you can proceed to Migrating Web Sites with the IIS 6.0 Migration Tool or Migrating Web Sites Manually.
