  • Migration from Windows 2000?

    Hi

    I have this pressing need to solve this situation.

    I have a client's server (the old server) that need to be migrated to Windows 2008 SBS 64 bit on the new Dell server, then the old server must be decomissioned and the new server must have the same windows domain and server name as the old server.

    I am not quite sure how to proceed.

    There is a lot of info on 2003 to 2008 migration but not 2000. Microsoft does not provide good info for this difficult to handle scenarios.

    I read a lot about adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep and also about admt 3.1 (active directory migration tool) but I am not sure in which sequence I should follow.

    Has anyone been there in this situation?

    If so I would appreciate your comments.

    Thanks and regards

      Are you going from SBS2000 to SBS2008, or from Server 2000 to SBS 2008 ?

        Thank I knew about this website and there is no mention of a win2000 to win2008 sbs swing kit.

        The other issue I would have is that my client (being small) would not spend the money for such a kit.

          As far as I know Win 2000 to Windows 2008 SBS.

          How do I check the eact version?

          I ran winver at the command prompt and it says windows 2000, there is no mention of windows 2000 sbs.

            https://www.sbsmigration.com/store/i...p?product_id=5 US$200!!

            How much is your time worth or better phrased, how much does it cost your client for your time?
            How much does it cost your client for each hour they are down?
            Would your client like the job done right the first time or would they be impressed by repeat visits to fix minor problems?

            If you search the product list on Jeff's site you will find that Swing Migration does cover Windows Server 2000 to SBS 2008. I personally know of at least one MS SBS MVP (2003 - 2009) who keeps a copy of Swing on their laptop. If it is good enough for him to use it, then who am I to question my betters.

            You may like to search the Forums and read some of the stories about members who have tried to "swing" the Microsoft way. For a small price you have a tool that can be used multiple times (assuming the correct licence), save you time and you clients money PLUS enhance your reputation as an IT Professional.
