Moving IIS Security Settings
Internet Information Services (IIS) provides web services on Windows. A key part of IIS is its security database, sometimes called the “metabase”.
The IIS security database contains a list of security settings for IIS. It includes user permissions for accessing web sites. It also contains configuration parameters for virtual web sites, virtual folders, the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Service, and other IIS settings.
U-Move can move IIS metabase to the destination computer.
You normally change the IIS settings using the IIS MMC Console (C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc). Or launch it from the GUI:
- Press WIN+R.
- In the Open box type control and click OK. This will open the Control Panel.
- Double-click on Administrative Tools.
- Double-click on Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
The IIS security settings are stored in XML configuration files in the folder \Windows\system32\inetsrv\config.
