Migrating Server 2003 to SBS 2008
Posted on 2011-03-07
I am in the middle of migrating Microsoft Server 2003 standard to Microsoft SBS 2008. The migration tool for 2008 will not work on 2003 server. I am trying to complete the migration but I am stuck as there are several things that appear to not function:
I have gotten the new server into AD and has taken all the FSMO roles over from the existing server.
It seems to have issues with Netlogon when i try to demote the original PDC. I looked through the MS tech article to migrate SBS 2003 to 2008 and it appears there has to be some sort of changes to groups and users within SBS 2008.
All data has been copied to the new server, but I cannot access the shares from machines that have what appears are appropriate permissions. ( I get permissions errors).
Has anyone migrated from 2003 to SBS 2008?
I did find a 3 part article on this online but it is not indepth enough to explain what has to happen.
