  • Migrate SBS 2003 to new hardware

    This is my first post here
    I'm migrating SBS 2003 to new hardware according to MS article (on technet).
    It all went well until I got to the "Move Exchange Server 2003 mailboxes".
    Some mailboxes were moved and some remained on the old server.

    Iím really stuck here and we cannot work like this. YOUR HELP NEEDE!

    When started investigating, I found out no SYSVOL and NETLOGON on the new server.
    I read endless solutions on the net and non applied or solved.
    Tried the BurFlags D2.
    I can ping the servers both ways (FQDN and server name).
    Both servers resolve eachother's names.
    Changes to AD appear on other server (both ways).
    Used REPLMON to check replication and results appear to be fine.
    Occasional NETDIAG and DCDIAG report LDAP problems.
    I keep getting 13565 & 13508.

    Any ideas?

    I went through all the various threads on petri forums and no solution was found

    Check the FRS and NTDS logs in Eventviewer for Journal Wrap errors, they are very common when adding a new DC to an SBS domain. If you've got one, the details in the event tell you how to fix it.

      Solved - Migrate SBS 2003 to new hardware

      Thank you for your reply
      After almost 3 days of digging, I found out that I had to use burflags on both server.
      D4 on the source server (than restart the ntfrs service)
      D2 on the target server (than restart the ntfrs service)

      Within minuets problem was solved

        Much as I love SBS 2003, is it really worth it to switch an 8 year old OS to new Hardware. Since you were already doing most of the work, shouldn't you have upgraded to SBS2011 at the same time?
