Clarification on use of Plesk Migration Manager Utility

    I would like to move domains hosted on a Windows 2003/iis 6 server to Plesk 8.6. The source server DOES NOT have a hosting platform.

    Can the Migration Manager be used for such a migration?

    I have read the Migration Manager's Admin guide. It has a section titled "Control Panel-Independent Migration From IIS-Based Web Servers", suggesting that the migration can be done independently of a control panel, but the section itself specifies that it's possible to move sites hosted on servers using other control panels.

    My guess is that the Migration Manager won't work without a host platform.

    Can someone confirm for me if it is possible to use this utility to migrate sites from a server that has no hosting platform.

    If not, is there some way of doing this (short of the manual drudgery of creating the sites, users, etc., and migrating the data and settings)?
