We have a member server called FILESERVER, it's 2003 Storage Edition and is used for shared fiels only.

We have a replacement server ready to go but are unsure as to what problems we may face. Ideally we want to copy everything across (with permissions), then down the old server, rename the new one FILESERVER, then re-set up the shares.

Should this be possible without any problems?
