  • keep same WS name

    Here is what I want to do. Old sbs2003 server is out.

    bought new server. installed new sbs2003R2 OS. Will migrate users data (exchange was getting email from isp via pop3 before).

    I want to create (recreate) the same users names etc., including the same names of the workstations. Such as Reception2.

    How can I rejoin the WS's to the sbs server? Do I have to alter the names of the WS's and use connectcomputer again? Or is there a way to keep the old names?

    You will need to run the connect wizard but can keep the old names. Whats important is the SID, which will change

        All previous setting/profiles will be lost (Pretty significant)
