How can I move my IIS server to another machine?

A. In the %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv directory there is a program called "iissync". This program will transfer over all your IIS settings to the new computer, including certificates, virtual domains, and for the most part, everything you need. Just open a dos prompt, and run "iissync \\newcomputername" and wait a bit.

The IISSYNC utility is used to synchronize Internet Information Server (IIS) metabase and Transaction Server packages on one Node with IIS on a Microsoft Cluster Server on the other Node.
