SBS Migration (New Hardware)


Recommended Posts

I've bought a new rack server to replace my old SBS box in the house. I've never been involved in a domain migration so am looking for people with past experience or advice on how to do so.

I'm in a couple of minds at the moment;-

1. Swing Migration

2. Regular MS Domain Migration

3. Disk Image (e.g. Acronis True Image)

Option 3 will offer me a problem free (fingers crossed) option, however part of the reason for the new server was to learn a given methodology. A friend has loaned me a copy of his Swing Migration kit, but I am reading the documents and my head is sent spinning - I'll give them another read as I was short on time when I started.

Your comments are most welcome

I was going to say, add the 2nd machine as a 2nd dp, promote it and virtualize the old one.. But your running SBS, and my experience lies with Standard/Enterprise.

I would suggest trying ADMT first, read this guide. Microsoft have some really in-depth information but the general the actual processes they describe are simple.
