looking for powershell or orchestration to backup c:/initpub/cireson/* and IIS configuration and possible any other critical files on nightly basis... even though we run backs nice to have stuff at our figure tips...

    You should not use Orchestrator for backup. use a real backup solution instead like DPM.

    You could do a simple Runbook to monitor the files in the folder and copy them when changed etc.
    We have done something slimier for a customer to copy files to another server when they are changed (for redundancy reasons) and email out any error results, I can provide the run book if required to give you an idea.

    Below is a simple batch script to export configs with date stamp. Haven't tried it in PowerShell or convert it yet. As for changes, I use svn to track changes to custom files and even most the portal upgrade files b/c I'm curious what changes version to version. With svn installed could simply do an svn check-in nightly and have changes versioned... or git if you prefer.

    @echo off
    set hh=%time:~0,2%
    if "%time:~0,1%"==" " set hh=0%hh:~1,1%
    set mnth=%date:~4,2%
    set day=%date:~7,2%
    set yr=%date:~10,4%
    set hr=%hh%
    set min=%time:~3,2%
    set sec=%time:~6,2%
    set dt=%yr%-%mnth%-%day%--%hr%-%min%-%sec%

    set backupdir=c:\backups\iis_configs
    if exist %backupdir% ( echo %backupdir% exists ) ELSE ( mkdir %backupdir% && echo %backupdir% created)

    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list apppool /config /xml > %backupdir%\%dt%_apppools.xml
    %windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd list site /config /xml > %backupdir%\%dt%_sites.xml

    echo Files written to %backupdir%

    timeout 7
