    What is the best way to migrate my Shares from my 2003 server to my 2012 server?

    Robocopy still the best out there?

    i would suggest R'ingTM in this instance. you could use a 3rd party application like robocopy, or you could use the tools already available to windows admins:

    Saving and restoring existing Windows shares

    pretty simple stuff and beats buying software.

    enjoy.

      Will that work with 2012?

      So that will create the share - but what will migrate the data?

        thats a good question.. i didnt even realize that 2012 wasnt on the list of supported products, many apologies.

        in that event, i will now direct you to another KB that is specifically for 2012:

        Migrate File and Storage Services to Windows Server 2012

        sorry about that. now you should have all the tools and information you will need to migrate shares from NT 4.0 to 2012.

          Just wondering, have you actually tried typing in the robocopy command in Windows Server 2012?

          Yes it still exist in Windows 2012.

            I have always used Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit. (server 2003 + 200
            2012 isn't listed as a supported OS, I can't confirm if it would work on 2012 or not.
