SBS 2011 Migration Problems
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have played with two SBS 2011 migrations so far. I guess my real question is "is it worth it"? Things went pretty good on both until one of the very last steps. Removing Exchange Server from the source server. The first migration was from a Windows 2003 Server running Exchange Server 2003. The second was from SBS 2003. The Exchange Server didn't un-install properly from either. I am working on the SBS 2003 now. Every time I try and uninstall it a second time I get this continual pop-up anpit NNTP not being installed in IIS and can't even get to the point or trying to uninstall Exchange a second time. Is there a way around this?
I was serious about "is it worth it". The general concensus on earlier versions and migrations was more or less if you fave 25 or fewer workstations it wasn't worth the pain or suffering. I would tend to agree. I lost two whole weekends and was right down to the end and couldn't un-install Exchange. Anyone have an opinion as to wether or not migration is worth it for 25 workstations? Does anyone have any idea how to force a Exchange uninstall?
