I have installed Management Services on IIS, and want to configure for Web Deploy.

At Server level I can see Mangagement Service, Feature Delegation, IIS Managers, etc

I also have IIS6 management installed, but as this is a production server I don't want to remove it just to check.

With Web Platform Installer, if you install the Web Deployment Tools 2.0, this will now be installed Out Of the Box. – Pure.Krome Apr 5 '11 at 0:48
It is true now, but at the time there was something going on with intall where it wouldn't automatically "check the box" – burnt_hand Apr 5 '11 at 8:59

Answered it myself.

Used the Web Deployment Tool installer and clicked "Change" then added the IIS Management components.

Now I can set Web Deploy service delegations

That worked for me as well. Also be sure to restart IIS or it won't show up. Cheers! – Chris Ballance Sep 11 '14 at 15:03
To find this download please see the more detailed explanation from fiat – Coulton Feb 12 at 21:03

I used these steps for Windows Server 2008 R2.

  • Go to Web Deploy home page. The default download at time of writing doesn't allow change/remove/repair. Keep reading.
  • Click 'additional downloads', obtain the full offline msi for x86 or 64bit.
  • Run the installer
  • Remove the 'Management Service Delegation UI' feature
  • Finish Install
  • Reinstall 'Management Service Delegation UI' feature
  • Close and restart Server Manager

On one server, I had to go one level higher and remove, add 'IIS Deployment Handler' before I got the Delegation icon to appear in IIS. This may have been because I didn't follow the final step.

If the Web Deploy installer does not present the 'IIS Deployment Handler' option and child components, ensure that your web role has the 'management tools' option installed.
