Hi,

Relatively new sbs user, I did a deployment of sbs 2008 a few months ago at my work. I guess you could say it was a learning process. Now that I have a limping network, and a better understanding of what I need and want out of it, I would like to do a fresh install.

Is there a good way to retain the user/email accounts, possibly domain settings, and do a clean reinstall on the same box? Any sort of magical exporting features im missing?

Thanks

Here is our install guide:

You can do an SBS 2008 to SBS 2008 migration. You will need a second system to provide the way off your original box and then migrate back onto the original box.
