I want to move the hard disk to a different server. It is running SBS2003. Apart from the obvious like network and video drivers which can easily be changed what are the implications ? Can this be done ?

If it's just data, then no problems at all.

If it's an active, production server that you want to change the motherboard for then you've got a fight on your hands.

I saw an article, which I am now completely unable to find, which said perform an in-place upgrade on the current hardware. As the server reboots after copying files, move the drive/drives to the new hardware. Windows will then perform the hardware detection on the new server.

I wish I could find the article again, as the usual warnings and disclaimers will apply...

I'm going to request to have this question deleted because a) the requirement has passed and b) I have not had any guidance on how to go about this.

Thanks

I think his failure to follow up on my comment should preclude refund.

I beleive the Q was answered, and would have provided more detail if asked.

"perform an in-place upgrade on the current hardware. As the server reboots after copying files, move the drive/drives to the new hardware. Windows will then perform the hardware detection on the new server."
