We are currently running Microsoft Essential Business Server 2008 and would like to convert/migrate to the standard products. Since EBS was discontinued we signed up and received our EBS Migration Kit
. I have a two part question.
1. Have any of you migrated off EBS using the same hardware and if so how did it go?
2. Reading through the documentation at one point it sounds like all I need to do is to run the Migration Preparation Tool for EBS
and we are left with servers that have the EBS uniqueness removed from them and can't be upgraded to any newer versions, but will continue to function correctly. Other documentation makes it sound like I need to run the Migration Prep. tool, move all the roles off the servers and then wipe and rebuild them with the same names.Which is correct?
Ideally we would have some new servers and could decommission the ones and move to the others but we don't have that luxury at this point.
