My old server IIS 6 wtih Windows 2003, has a site with more than 50 virtual directories. Now, i want to move them into New Windows 2012 server. So, i exported the site as XML file from IIS6 but, there is no import option in IIS8. May i know what to do to import
this xml. FYI, i already tried with commands but, the commands wont accept this file format.
experts please help me.

The IIS6 use metabase and IIS 8 use applicationhost.config to store the virtual directory. So I think maybe it is unavailable to import the IIS6 virtual directory from IIS.
The only way to achieve this is use web deploy to migrate server from IIS 6 to IIS 8:
