How to move an entire Windows 2000 server with all installed applications and settings over to a new machine
Posted on 2004-08-23
Our company has six servers, and most of them are getting old (P3's, Xeons). There are one PDC and 2 BDC's, all Windows 2000 Server. They are all running terminal services, hosting about 30 applications in between them. All are using Raid-5, using between 3 and 10 drives. Most use Adaptec Scsi-controllers.
My question is simple: Is there any known method, or any application, which will allow me to move EVERYTHING (except hardware drivers) from server A to server B, so that we can put up the new machine as a fully working replacement of the old server?
Maybe even easier put - we just want to replace the hardware of the server with something more modern (2xXeon/P4, more memory, perhaps larger disks, and leave everything else to run as before.
