Transfer FTP and users to new server box
Posted on 2011-03-08
I'm currently using Windows Server 2003 Enterprise as a Workgroup (NO Active Directory installed) on a Dell workstation Vostro 420 (didn't have the budget at that time), I use this server only for FTP and File Sharing (NO Websites).
Now, I want to move everything to the faster box (also a Dell Poweredge 2950), I still will use it as a Workgroup server, so I'll NOT install Active Directory on the new server, may questions as follow:
1. Should I use Windows Server 2003 or 2008?
2. How do I transfer all the users and rights of FTP and so on.... to the new server as painlessly as possible?
Thanks in advance for your help.
