SBS Migration - Old server shutting down before 21 days

Hi,

I have been having several issues with an SBS migration, many of which I have now resolved but one big issue is that our old server is continually rebooting. I appreciate that's something that happens during a migration but I understood to be after 21 days not 7 (days since I started migration). Can anyone help?

I have the SBCORE 1001, 1002 events in the event viewer on my SBS 2003 box.

Thanks in advance...

When you run the sourcetool on your source server to prepare it for migration it should install the following update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943494 this extends the grace period from 7 to 21 days

Hi,

Thanks for that. I've installed the update and rebooted. I'm sure that will be the fix but I'll give it a few hours before giving out the points.

Cheers,

Did you demote the source SBS 2003 box? As soon as it is no longer a DC, there is no extension beyond 7 days.

Also, did you run the SourceTool preparation step? It installs that update by default.

Hi again Philip,

No, the SBS 2003 has not yet been demoted. So far so good!
