    Just a question about the 2003 2011 migration answer file….

    The install process of SBS2011 give you the option of a new install or migration – join an existing domain…

    So if you choose the migration – join an existing domain, doesn’t that make the generation of the answer file kinda redundant?

    Or am I missing a trick here?

    You still need it, because it sets the name and IP and a few other things for the new server, plus you provide the credentials used to authenticate to the domain.

    So what’s the point of “Migration – Join an exisiting domain” or does it assume your already working through the migration guide and have an answer file?

    Since the installation is really an unattendedimage transfer, you need teh answer file to personalise your image.
    You cannot install SBS as the separate pieces (any more). It’s an integrated image install.
