Windows IIS Application Server for Web Deploy 3.0

Open in Dashboard

Published by Patrick McClory on Apr 16, 2013Revision: 1


This ServerTemplate is an All-in-One template which utilizes Web Deploy 3.0 packages.

This ServerTemplate configures a full IIS installation and includes built-in monitoring and alerts on CPU, memory, and disk as well as monitor metrics for IIS.

Key Features:

  • Best practices installation of IIS via PowerShell
  • Automated deployment process using MSDeploy/Web Deploy 3.0

The following inputs are the only required inputs for this ServerTemplate--by filling in only these inputs you will get a base install of SQL 2012 Express with IIS serving the appropriate default splash page.


If you want to install an application via an MSDeploy package, fill in the following inputs:

    • MSDEPLOY_SITE_NAME (defaults to Default Web Site)

Note, that the MSDeploy/Web Deploy package needs to include all files. I've also developed a MSBuild Target to do this--you'll need both Web Deploy 3.0 as well as the MSBuild Extension Pack to utilize that specific target. Currently this template also supports overriding the contents of the MSDeploy/Web Deploy parameter file content by putting a value in the APPLICATION advanced setting MSDEPLOY_PARAMETERFILECONTENT input. If you have a data-driven application, please also ensure that you've created a user for the application either on the associated database server.
