Web Deploy Provider Settings

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP

Providers can be optionally modified by using provider settings. Provider settings can be added to either a source or a destination by using the general syntax


For example, in the following sync operation, the provider setting computerName=Server1 is used with the metaKey provider to specify that the source lm/w3svc/1 is found on the computer named Server1.

msdeploy.exe -verb:sync -source:metakey=lm/w3svc/1,computerName=Server1 -dest:metakey=lm/w3svc/2


There is no space between the comma and the provider setting.
