Hin Experts,

I migrated a SBS2003 to SBS2008 using the Microsoft way.
Old-Servername: SBS01, New-Servername: SBS08
All worked well.
As one last step after degrading the old SBS2003-DC, I created a CNAME on the new SBS08 to resolve the old name SBS01 into the IP-Adress of the new Server.

I hoped, that with this configuration all ols links \\SBS01\Share will still work and connect to the new Server.

nslookup and ping work well with the old name and i get response from the new server.
but \\SBS01\Share in Windows-Explorer just says that i may have no rhights or the destination account name is invalid

can anybody help?

thanks in advance

2nd question:
I just started outlook on an old TerminalServer 2003
This Outlook client did not anything about moving the Ex2007 on the new server.
i had to go in mail/account setting and change the servername manually
then he connected to my new mailbox and all mails were there

do i have to do this with every user on every machine or is there an automatic way?

Question 1 - What you are asking for here is a netbios alias. http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/tips/jsi-tip-0062-give-your-machine-a-netbios-alias-.aspx This will work fine for a non DC, but cannot be applied to a DC. So in short, even if you fix DNS your new server will not respond to a netbios request for the old name.

Question 2 - As the old server is now removed from the network there is no way of Outlook knowing the mailbox has moved. You will have to update the profiles. There are some wyas of doing this. What version of outlok are you using?

Q1 - yes that would work 100%

Q2 - Outlook 2003 you could use a outlook .prf file. The users would then just have to doble click it to create a new profile. http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/prf.htm
Outlook 2007 I would just get users to delete their profile, as 2007 should autodetect new settings on startup with blank profile.

I guess it depends on how many users you have too.....
