I’ve done a few SBS2003 > SBS2001 migrations and in a few weeks I’m doing a SBS2008 to SBS2008 migration to new hardware – and VM using VSphere…
Any tips or gotchas to look out for?
Does SBS2008 ask you for a new install or migration after the initial setup like SBS2011 does or does it just keep you wondering until the end??!
You can do it as a migration using an answer file, same as going from 2003 to 2008 or 2011. Microsoft have a migration guide for this scenario too.
If you’re simply moving SBS to new hardware and not migrating to a new domain then I might suggest a bare metal restore. You can read about it here – http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2010/06/11/how-to-perform-a-bare-metal-restore-on-small-business-server-2008.aspx
Yeah – I’ve been reading up on that already – seems a bit easier than going from 2003 to 2011!!
