  • SBS2008 to SBS2008 New Hardware VM

    Hi all,

    I've done a few SBS2003 > SBS2001 migrations and in a few weeks I'm doing a SBS2008 to SBS2008 migration to new hardware - and VM using VSphere...


    Any tips or gotchas to look out for?

    Does SBS2008 ask you for a new install or migration after the initial setup like SBS2011 does or does it just keep you wondering until the end??!
    Regards,

    Lee

    You can do it as a migration using an answer file, same as going from 2003 to 2008 or 2011. Microsoft have a migration guide for this scenario too.

      If you're simply moving SBS to new hardware and not migrating to a new domain then I might suggest a bare metal restore. You can read about it here - http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archi...rver-2008.aspx

        Yeah - I've been reading up on that already - seems a bit easier than going from 2003 to 2011!!
