Microsoft IIS

A VSS enabled Bacula client will be able to safely backup IIS content files without difficulty but this omits the web server configuration. The Microsoft provided script iisback.vbs is well documented in the help for the IIS Management Console.

This will write a backup called “baculaiisconfig” to the folder %systemroot%\System32\inetsrv\MetaBack:

Job {
  Name = "IISServer"
  Client = "IIS"
  FileSet = "IIS"
  ClientRunBeforeJob = "c:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\iisback.vbs /backup /b baculaiisconfig /overwrite /v HIGHEST_VERSION"
}

Make sure you include both your wwwroot and metaback directories in your fileset.
