  • SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 new hardware

    I've been tasked with migrating our sbs2003 server to a new sbs2011 server. Our company has around 20 users, we use exchange and have a few satellite offices of which one is in a different country (3 users).

    Am I right in understanding that if I go down the MS route for migration, that we would need to re-attach the clients in those sub offices to the new domain (as it can't be the same as the existing)?

    The other alternatives are to do a swing migration from sbsmigration.com (keep same domain) or to build a new server and import from PST (exchange) and recreate all the shares and permissions etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    just do the swing migration mate

    it's probabl;y the best recognised option

      I agree with tehcamel of course, but the options you laid out are correct.

        hi ramtec,
        Providing all computers are on the same domain and DNS is all working I can't see why the "microsoft" migration method wouldn't work.
        Have a look at the it-book.co.uk site - there is a walkthrough for this there.
        Hope this helps,
        Al
