Spitting SBS into 2
Posted on 2008-10-27
We have a SBS 2003 server that currently runs 2 distinct arms of our company. The domain name on the server is a .local Due to growth we want to split our server. Our intent is to buy a second SBS server and move one company onto the new server while we keep our other arm of the company on the existing server. (Our email has different suffixes). How do I copy our group policy? I haven't done this kind of thing before and I need to ensure that I can capture all of our settings for the new server, remove anything not needed from both servers and still keep the old server running as expected.
Microsoft's web site talks about migrating when you retire a server, however, I am looking for some comfort that this is an easy and attainable possibility. Can you shed some light on the process? Where do I start? etc. etc.
Thanks in advance
