Migrating all network services to a new server...
Posted on 2004-04-23
Here is my issue.. I am currently running a dual P2 450mhz server for a small company. This one server is providing the followng network services to 10 people:
Windows 2000 Active Directory/DNS (AD integrated zone)
MSFT PPTP VPN
I recently noticed the disk is starting to go bad (Many bad block and I/O errors). Unfortunately all this is running on a single 9 GB SCSI HDD with no fault tolerence at all.
So my questions are:
How do I migrate all this to a new server?
What disk configuration should I setup on the new server? (software mirror, raid 0,1,5)
Is it ok to run all these services on the same server?
I am looking for a detailed step-by-step process if possible. I also would like the new server to be a new name, but if it makes the migration more complex, I am will to keep the name the same.
