will reloaded sbs 2003 with the same name cause problems when re-joining workstations?
Posted on 2011-02-25
We are installing a new server at a client site, we are currently running sbs 2003 and we are going to be running the same software on the new server.
We are NOT using a system state restore because we are moving to new hardware - and although I know this is doable, it is a small network and we are happy to do a fresh load.
The only query I have is the following:
I want to keep the same internal domain name and the same server name to make everything run as smoothly as possible, I understand that despite leaving these details teh same, we will still ahve to log all of the workstations off and back on to the domain, but I am just wondering if anyone has done this with sbs in the past and whether it is likely to cause any problems - only because I have a voice in the back of my head thats telling me it may cause problems...???
