server 2003 change of platform / migration - how to?
Posted on 2009-05-20
Currently running Server 2003 DC with Terminal Services. This supports a multitude of applications and file serving.
We intend to change the hardware platform from IBM to HP. What is the easiest way to do this?
Can we just use NTbsckup with or without "System State" after loading the OS and appropriate drivers on the new server.
Would all permissions, policies and accounts be retained?
The thought of having to reinstall all applicatiionns and accounts etc. along with transfering data is quite intimidating. Any other solutions anybody would suggest?
