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.

For more information about how to back up the Web server, see Back Up and Restore the Web Server to a File or Tape.
