Windows 2000 Server Migration
Posted on 2006-05-24
I have an ancient 2000 Server box that needs to be replaced due to a motherboard failure. I will be replacing it with another box running 2000 server. This sever is both the domain controller and Exchange 2000 server.
Before I do the migration I wanted to ask the experts if there was a recommended way to handle this migration. Is there any utility we can purchase that will handle this, or do I have to manually re-create all accounts, settings, and mailboxes.
I thought about trying to restore an Exchange backup, but I didn’t know if I needed to create all the accounts and mailboxes ahead of time of if the restore would do that for me.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
