I am looking to upgrade my servers to all be Server 2008 R2 (currently they are all Server 2008 x64). I have been deciding to upgrade them by spinning up a new box and then to a transfer from the 2008 to the 2008R2 however I have a file server with 32 drives all setup in a single spanned drive. I do not have enough hard drive space to spin up a new server with that much space so I wasn't sure if I should try an OS upgrade or if I could spin up a new box and then assign the hard drives to the new box (and not lose data hopefully).
No announcement yet.
