How to backup the full IIS Server? Is there any Octopus Template in the Library for this?

Hi,

How to backup the full IIS Server? Is there any Octopus Template in the Library for this?

Thanks,
Miguel

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for reaching out. There no step templates for this. Octopus’ goal is to help with all things related to deployments. Depending on what you are looking for exactly (backup 1 site? Many sites? An entire snapshot image of your VM?) you might wanna think about writing scripts for this, in which case Octopus could help you executing them, or check for other solutions that were made for these purposes such as Microsoft’s SCCM.

Found it and added it to my project as a step template (2 lines of code):

Add-PSSnapin WDeploySnapin3.0
Backup-WDServer “X:\backups\IIS” -SourceSettings @{encryptPassword=’$EncriptPassword’}

You have to install Microsoft Web Deploy in the tentacle for this to work.
