This is the situation we have an NT4 BDC (Demoted with a windows 2003 upgrade)
This server has a very large file share.
We need to move everything off and it must not have any impact to the users. (Mapped network drive, Desktop Shortcut, Templates in office, ect)
Would this work?
Use robocopy to get the files to the new server, rename the old server (Nt4 BDC)
Finally rename the new box (Windows 2003) to the old server’s name.
