Ok. Cloud Computing is the new kid in the block. And Our company is getting into it really quickly. Not so much for the price benefit, but for the process management perspective. I am in the process of moving an IIS 6.0 server running in Windows 2003 Server. The IIS Engine has many Web Sites adn each Web Sites has Virtual Hosts configured, with Application Pools and all that good stuff.
I am backing up the IISPUB directory but since everything is running in the cloud now, I will like to make sure that if one day I come in and the server is completely gone. So the only thing that I have is the backups, I can recreate fairly easy the full scenario. I am trying to bind all Websites to All IPs so If the IP gets reassigned all will still works.
I know that the MetaBase is the file holding the configuration, what I don't know is how to backup that file often. Has any of the fellow IT Admin gotten into this situation before?
