I've got an environment with several IIS 6 web servers hosting hundreds of apps (dozens of sites, hundreds of virtual directories) all with a myriad of different configurations belonging to dozens of different developers (all deploying apps willy nilly).

Is there some sort of managed software solution that will

  • centralize management of all my IIS6 environments
  • provide some inventory functionality
  • allow for reporting or querying of said application inventory
  • enforce and automate some sort of deployment process?

I do not have a complete answer for you, but based on other threads here at SF, I have seen MS Web Deploy as a very good building block for it. I'm going to start playing with it, as soon as I ask the infrastructure team to deploy the agent to our test IIS servers.
