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).
As we didn't set up the backup job on this server we don't know what was included, but as far as the users know it's just the file shares, System State and Exchange.
I'll let you know how it goes.
