I find Microsoft's Web Deployment Tool (and the PowerShell features it enables) very helpful for site management.

Today I'd like to install it on a production Windows Server 2003 / IIS 6.0 server, but I need to know if it might require a reboot or iisreset (in which case I'd have to schedule downtime with change control, you know the drill.) Anyone know?

I was just able to install the current release Web Deploy 3.5 on an IIS 6/Server 2003 box with no service interruption, so I think I've answered my own question. :)
