I am installing a new setup of sbs2003. How do I copy Group policy and other settings from my old setup to the new one so that I do not have to reconfigure all the policies and settings?

HI
Download Group Policy Management Console. It has the ability to report and
export GPO's.

Hi

A solution would be Symantec Restore Anywhere (restore to new hardware), then change the partitions.

Well, if that's what you want to do, you have four options... I've detailed them out here:

There's also a new hardware migration method that has been recently published by Microsoft:

You've probably got more than just "settings" to migrate... Exchange?  SharePoint?  Printers?  Active Directory? DNS?  IIS?

I have few users at present thus yr option 2 i think wud b best.

I tried restoring the backup thru f8 directory services restore. The Exchange did not transfer properly even though the A/d worked.Any suggestions other than manually copying all across for exchange. I am primarily concerned abt archive files and one paricular mailbox with its mails.

EXMerge will export all mailboxes at once.  It's not really a "manual" process.
