    I have a machine that still runs Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6 that I really want to transfer to a new machine I have setup running Windows Server 2019 and IIS 10. I've tried using msdeploy but the size of the iis apps total over 37 GB, and it won't create a zip that large. Is it possible to use msdeploy for single apps that are less than 2GB or to use it to deploy to the remote machine?

    Documents like https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/publish/using-web-deploy/synchronize-iis indicate that

    1. Microsoft wants you to do it via the remote service.
    2. You should migrate site by site.

    The zip approach is pretty bad, as it hides most of the problems (not only due to the large ZIP size).

    Hi,

    You could use the below command to take a backup of the single site.

    C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy V3>msdeploy -verb:sync -source:iisapp="sample1" -dest:package=D:\Site1.zip

    or

    C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy V3>msdeploy -verb:sync -source:iisapp="sample1" -dest:iisApp="test",ComputerName=”https://server:8172/MsDeploy.axd”,UserName=’ServerUser’,Password=’password’
