We have two IIS 8.5 web servers, Server 2012 R2



I am trying to find a powershell command that will sync only changes made on Server1 to Server2

I tried shared configurations however that will sync the bindings as well and I do not want that as they are load balanced. Also I am trying to avoiding adding unneeded bindings to servers to make it work.

I found a couple webdeploy powershell commands however that looks like it wants to sync files as well, we use DFS to sync the files.

All I want to be able to do is sync changes from the Server1 applicationhost.config or web.config to Server2


Got it (Make sure you are using CMD ADMIN and Powershell ADMIN)

Using CMD, it will not work in powershell not sure why it doesn't.

msdeploy -verb:sync -source:webserver,computerName=acd-pv01 -dest:webserver,computerName=acd-pv02 -skip:skipAction=Delete,objectName=binding -skip:skipAction=AddChild,objectName=binding

A little overview

There are a couple posts online about a custom rule replaceipbindings

However the type is not valid, this is a bug that has not been fixed yet.

So you have the add the -skip:skipAction to the command line to make it work and use the objectName=binding

1 problem is if you created a new site, the configuration is brought over however the binding info in not because you told it not to

So the fix that use powershell

Add-WebConfigurationProperty -pspath 'MACHINE/WEBROOT/APPHOST'  -filter "system.applicationHost/sites/site[@name='SITENAME']/bindings" -name "." -value @{protocol='http';bindingInformation='IPADDRESS:80:SITENAME'}
