IS app pool import fails with error message configuration error insufficient permissions

0 votes

I am trying to export application pools from one server and then import it to newly created server.

Step 1: Export on server1

D:>%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list apppool /config /xml > d:\apppools.xml

Step2: Deleting duplicate apppools from xml file

Removed tags for defaultAppPool, .NetVxx appPools.

Step3: Importing on Server2

  • copied the apppools.xml file on server2
  • %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /in < D:\ServerFeature\apppools.xml

this gives error

D:\ServerFeature>%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd add apppool /in < D:\ServerFea ture\apppools.xml ERROR ( message:Configuration error Filename: redirection.config Line Number: 0 Description: Cannot read configuration file due to insufficient permissions . )

Please help me resolve this issue.
