I have been trying to move my SBS 2003 Premium server installation to another hardware set up using Acronis True Image Echo Enterprise Server. I can make an image put it on the new server. Universal restore works well and I get the new server to boot into SBS 2003. However, I cannot get an IP for the critical network connection that is Obviously, I turned off or disconnected the original server when trying to boot the new server into the network.

Does anyone have any suggestions.

Please disable all NIC's except for the main NIC (That is if you have more than one NIC) and run the change server IP wizard in Server Managenment Console> Internet and Email.
Make sure the NIC is connected to a switch or hub while doing this. Restart server after taht and follow all steps in TO DO List.
Hope that helps

Thank you for the very helpful suggestion. Because the origiinal server is our main server, I can only try your suggestion outside of regular business hours. Once I give it a try, I will be back with a report or an award of points!

Thank you. It turned out the problem was that the settings for the network adapter did not transfer over in Acronis Image, probably because the network cards were different. Your suggestion helped me solve the problem.
