  • Migrate SBS2k3 to new hardware

    I have a small business client on the side with 4 users that I need to replace their ratty old hardware. I bought them a Dell T410, very nice machine. After much strife and Googling after I couldn't install SBS2k3STD on the new box, I found that I could once I slipstreamed SP2 in.

    Now, I need a good plan on migrating from one box to other... I'd like to keep the same server/IP in the end, but what is the best method to do so? Would it be better to go with a new name/IP? Can I keep the existing domain?

    Let me know if you have any advice/suggestions/sarcastic remarks for me! Thanks in advance!!!

    In one word (well, link anyway):
    www.sbsmigration.com

    Worth every penny!

    (There are also MS Technet documents on migrating: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...54(WS.10).aspx but IMHO the paid version is better)

      +1 Dont bother with the MS documentation. The Swing migration kit is worth the money and expense. Used it numerous times and it makes life very simple.
