A few questions in my testing. Question 1. I am testing deploy Windows web instance to custom directory, UNCHECKED box “Purge this directory before install”. But deploy result still purged everything. We only want to deploy runnable contents and need to retain other contents like images etc. This is important for us. Is it doable? How to achieve that? Any command that work more reliable than GUI settings?
Question 2: in https binding - IP address, our web farm have dozen servers, each of those instance has its own IP that is configured for F5 load balance. We can’t use *, or one IP for whole farm. Is there proper way to configure it so the deploy can keep IP binding intact?
Question 3: is there any way to force the process NOT doing app pool part? we have large web farm, servers have multiple apps/IP, each deploy it check app pools, that looks quite costly and unsafe. Is there command to take out that step? The GUI appear no way to do that.
Question 4: is there any way to configure IIS child web application for specific authentication options? I saw IIS instance have that option. But some of our child web app also use their own authentication currently. In GUI, I can’t find way to configure it.
Thanks in advance for your help!
