Moving directories between R2 servers.
Posted on 2006-06-13
I have two file servers, one is Windows 2003 Server SP1 and the other (new) server is Windows 2003 Server R2. Basically the new server is going to take the place of the old file server, more space. I want to move my shares and directories over to the new server but keep the security on the folders and files. Does R2 offer any easy way to do this? Keeping both servers online permanently and using DFS is not an option since I need to reuse the old file server for another purpose. I was thinking of upgrading the old server to R2 to facilitate the move but I don't know if there is any point to doing this.
