Recover SBS 2003 to new hardware from BKF
Posted on 2010-11-10
Does anyone have a guide on how to best recover SBS 2003 to new hardware from a BKF backup?
The motherboard in a very old SBS box has gone pop and we can't get a like for like replacement. We can only get one with a diff chipset, controller, processor...oh and ram....and HD type....brilliant !
Just restoring the system state is gonna cause all kinds of blue screens.
Anyone know of a good guide on how best to handle this? It's not a large SBS install so I thought about just reinstalling SBS on the "new" hardware with the same name and domain, setting up AD and adding the users by hand (only 8 of them) then trying to get the EDBs moved over (that's where my plan falls apart).
