Moving Home folders to a different server
Posted on 2006-03-21
Ok, here is what I hope will be a really easy question.
I have a SBS 2003 server currently serving as an Exchange Server, and File Server among other things. This server is very quickly running out of hard drive space. I have acquired a new server, and I want to move the file server functionality to this new server. I need to know how to tell active directory (running on the older server) to create users home folders on the new server. I have read the Microsoft white paper on how to move data folders. I assume that naming a share "Users" is how sbs 2003 knows where to create the home folders if the share is on the same server as AD. Will this work if the "Users" share is on a different server entirely? If not, what is the best way to create a new users home folder without doing it manually?
I hope this was clear enought. If not, I give more info.
