I get the following error when I try to use the Web Deployment Tool and a URL is the path of a virtual directory:
C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy>msdeploy -verb:sync -source:metakey=lm/w3svc -dest:archivedir=c:\archive,encryptPassword=mypassword > msdeployachive.log
Error: File system path 'http://mysite.com/nnn' is not valid. Only absolute paths are supported. Error count: 1.
This appears to be the part of the metabase (IIS 6) it is complaining about:
<IIsWebVirtualDir Location ="/LM/W3SVC/9999999999/root/stuff" AccessFlags="AccessRead" AppFriendlyName="stuff" HttpRedirect="http://mysite.com/nnn" Path="http://mysite.com/nnn" > </IIsWebVirtualDir>
Unfortunately there are hundreds of virtual directories like this with a URL as the path.
Anyone know of a solution or a good alternative for migrating hundreds of sites from IIS 6 to IIS 7?
