  • file server migration toolkit

    Hello Everyone:

    I am using FSMT and have completed the migration but i guess what i thought i knew i don't.

    What is the proper way to get network shares working again

    1. rename file server to old file server name
    2. manually remap all network drives on the computers
    3. learn and create a logon script to remap all network drive for users

    or is there some other way to do this properly

    thanks

    As long as it is just a file server and isn't sharing any data for applications etc, I would have thought your best option is to call it the same name as the old file server and give it the same IP adress as well.

      Moffl,

      If I am understanding your question correctly, you have used the FSMT, migrated the shares and they are no available on the new server and you just need away to point the users to the new path?

      If so, quick and dirty would be change the DNS information for the old server name to point to the new server IP address either via an "A" record or "CNAME" entry. I wouldn't suggest this route, but it will work in a pinch. From there you could work on using either option 2 or 3 to complete it more elegantly or as Virtual mentioned, rename the server and change the IP address.
