Migrating from SBS 2000 to SBS 2003 R2
Posted on 2006-11-08
Now I have SBS 2000 with about 25 users/computers. But the server hardware it is running on is old and is suffering from overloads often and is very very slow.
I have plans to buy new server hardware with SBS 2003 R2.
QUESTION: as these two operating systems cannot co-exist on the same network is there any way I could easily thansfer all users/groups/DC settings and other stuff from old server to new one?
As I understand even if I manually create the same domain (e.g. MyDomain.local), recreate user accounts and groups with same name this will not save me from "reconnectiong" all workstations to newly created domain.
Any thoughts/ideas/links on this kind of migration would be great.
Thanks for your time
