Transfer SBS Server Roles
Posted on 2009-03-31
Don't have time to research this. Here is the problem.
Was setting up a new SBS2003, to migrate our old SBS2003. I was using a procedure from Technet. I transfered all the roles to the new server. (Schema Master, Domain Naming Master, RID Master, PDC) During the "continue setup" on the new server, the setup failed. I left things alone until I could research problem. Everything worked fine when I left this weekend. Yesterday, we discovered email would not send. I changed the DNS server back to the orginal server for a quick fix. I wanted to revert the Roles, but the servers won't talk to each other. There me be another factor here... for some reason, the new server is handing out the wrong time, even though the server has the proper time on it. I have stopped w32time services (on new server) and that seemed to remedy that for now. Basically, I want to revert the roles back and start over with the new server.
