SBS 2003 Sharepoint Services to New Hardware

I am in the process of moving a 2003SBS installation to a new server which will replace the old server and keep the same name as the old 2003SBS server. I have used the SwingMigration Kit to accomplish the majority of this and have had no problems transferring AD, Exchange or any of that. The stumper for me is the Sharepoint services. I can't figure out how to get the "companyweb" on the old hardware moved over to the new hardware. Backup and restore doesn't seem to work and MS technical pages are seeming to prove more confusing than helpful. This is the last stage of my migration so all help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi tmjb813,

Is the problem you are having not to do with name resolution?  Goto the new server and then right click on the web site "companyweb" and then click brows.  What happens?  What is the name that the browser wants to go to?

Regards,
M

Hi,

No I don't think dns is the issue. I can open "companyweb" with no problem, but it is only the default site that is setup during the installation. I can't figure out how to get all of the configurations I had created on the old server, on to the new server (ie. links, document libraries, calendar info, etc.). You know like on the old server, when you went to "companyweb" it opened up with all the nice configurations that had been made, etc. etc.. Now I am back to square one default site and can't figure out how to make the new "companyweb" the same as the old "companyweb".

Thanks
