I want to retire one old file server and transfer the files to the new server. I'm planning this since it looks it's a delicate process for the organization.
I need your advice with the following topics.
1. How to collect all permissions in old server
2. Best way to transfer the files to the new server and preserve permissions. I have Backup Exec.
The files are in several locations:
a) Local Disks
b) USB Disk
c) EVA Virtual Disks
3. How to plan the new shares in the new box. (Best practices).
4. How to compare and test the results.
