Can anyone suggest the best way of moving websites on server1 with IIS7 to server2 with IIS 7.5 on it? I've read some articles which suggest copying the applicationHost.config file while preserving the configProtectedData node, but I'm concerned there may be settings in the IIS 7.5 config that don't exist in the current IIS7 config which would be lost.
I've also seen suggestions of moving each site individually by using a command like this: AppCmd.exe LIST SITE "My Site" /config /XML > mysite.xml
This method just takes too long to do this for dozens of sites. There must be a better way of moving all the sites at once to the new platform.
I posted this question originally on stackoverflow.com and someone suggested I post it here as well. Here's the posts and responses from there: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1955273/move-websites-from-iis7-to-iis-7-5
