Migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011
Posted on 2011-02-10
I am preparing to migrate from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011. I have read through the migration instructions for SBS 2003 to SBS 2008, and am using that to guide me through the process. However, it does not go into what to expect. For example, it mentions that there will be irreversible changes made during the migration wizard, but it does not say what will be changed.
So here are my questions:
What changes will be made by the migration wizard?
Will we be able to continue using the SBS 2003 server after the migration wizard is performed and while the new SBS 2011 server is being configured?
If there will be server downtime, how long should we expect the unavailability to be?
Does the migration wizard require a restart?
I have other questions, but those will suffice for now.
