MOVING SBS2003 & EXCHANGE SERVER TO A NEW MORE POWERFUL MACHINE - WHY NOT IMAGE -RESTORE- REPAIR?
Posted on 2006-04-21
Im going to move our existing SBS 2003/Exchange Server machine to a new, more powerful machine. I have purchased this swing migrating kit. I am wondering however, why to spend the 10 hours + going through the swing migration steps reather then just making an image of the exisiting server, restoring that to the new server, and then performing a repair install? Wouldnt this cloning method be much faster then a swing migration?
