OK, this should be fun to read the responses. I have been handed a Windows 2000 Server (IIS 5) and told that the pages and apps on there need to live forever, but I need to get off Win2K. A lot looks written for .NET 1.1.
So, let's just shoot the moon and go straight over to Server 2012 (IIS 8).
I can't find anyone else doing this, in terms of binging, googling, or what have you.
If it were on 2003, I think MSDeploy would be an option, of where there's even a whole forum for that here.
I'm pretty much open to anything. We already have the system virtualized, so I can clone it and play with a copy of it.
* Go back in time and not let this box get so deprecated and make the devs that wrote the stuff use a current hought is to in-place upgrade to 2003.
* Quit my job.
Ideas I had:
* In-place upgrade of clone to 2003. Try and use MSDeploy on that.
* Put up crazy forum post on iis.net, see if anyone who can talk systems admin will answer.

Ha, Win2K. That machine even boots up??
I have never attempted an IIS 5 to IIS 8 migration nor have I seen a post a/b it either. What I would do is go from
IIS 5 to IIS 6. Once on IIS6, I would use
Web Deploy like you mentioned.

For most migrations you can just copy the webpages.
That is what I would do for this but if it is written in ASP.NET 1.1 then it is not support in Win 2012
