Migrating from Mac filerserver to Win2K??
Posted on 2003-11-12
Hi everybody, I'm new here and this is my first question.
I am fairly new to the IT industry, I've been around computers all my life, just not in a professional capacity.
Anyways, my associate and I have inherited quite a mess of a network and are currently in the process of sorting it all out and migrating all the data from severa MAC based servers to Win2K servers.
The office is about 20% Mac users and the rest Windows, however the fileserver is currently Mac-based. when doing some Mac->PC migrations I've run into some problems invoving mac-based file and directory syntax that is unrecognizeable to WinXP. In these cases so far I've literally gone in by hand and renamed,moved and copied files into directories and conventions that were Win compliant. However, when it comes time to migrate all the data from the fileserver over to the new Win-based server, this will not be a viable solution as there are gigs and gigs of data.
Do any of you know of or implement any solutions that make this migration from mac to PC simpler?
Thanks from a noob.
