SBS 2008 Migration Live
Posted on 2011-02-10
I have a new SBS2008 that I started in Migration mode. I have (2) Windows Server 2003 boxes that I am replacing with this single SBS.
I've never done this before, so forgive my ignorance.
Have not upgraded the Schema on the SBS2003 machines. I stopped just short. Wondering how far I can go "live" as in users still using the old servers. How much upgrading/preparation can I do with these old servers without disrupting thier work?
I know I have to change Exchange to Native mode - which shouldn't be a problem becuase it's the only exchange server in my domain (right?).
SBS2008 Installation is telling me that I need to upgrade my schema on my 2003 machine. Thought I would stop because I dont want to disrupt workflow in the office.
Is this something I can do live, or just tackle it on a Saturday?
