Here are resources for our August 5 geekSpeak with Mark Rosenberg on the Web Deployment tool.



Before I deploy my ZIP file to destination servers, will it validate if my destination servers are compatible with required settings (hardware or software or anything else) just to make sure ZIP file is 100% compatible?

Unfortunately they do not have this provider created yet. The idea would be that System Center would do the prepping up of the box and MsDeploy will do the job of installing the web app. Eventually the team may consider creating a special provider which does the compatibility check. By the way, anyone in the community could write that provider – the MsDeploy provider APIs are public. ;)

Will it be in Visual Web Developer? Or only pro version & higher?

It will be available in Visual Web Developer Express edition.
