Hi

Hoping someone can help with my issue here.

Attempted a migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011.

Since thsi is a Micorsoft product and they never work like thry're suppossed to, during the migration it came up with a message that Replication was taking to long and did I want to try again or skip. Tried again 3 times but the message kept coming back, in teh end I chose to skip.

Migration carried on an completed.

When I logged in to the 2011 SBS it dispalyed 3 errors:

1) Windows Small Business Server group policies cannot be configured
2)Windows Server Update Services cannot eb configured
3) An error occurred while installing or configuring a Windows SBS application

I've hilighetd the issue on the console and click the "how do I fix this?" link which takes me to a very helpful Microsoft web page that pretty much says "You have an error" and that's about it.

Is there a way to resolve these issues without having to start the migration all over again (which also has the potential to go teh same way as this one)?

Ok, sounds like you are going to have to start the migration again.

First thing is to make sure the SBS2003 server is in good health, and that only one network card is enabled on the SBS2008 server BEFORE you start the install.

See my guide here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/SBS_Small_Business_Server/A_4234-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Small-Business-Server-2011.html

Thanks for the swift reply.

Sadly teh server will never be in great health. The client has left it a little too long in replacing his current hardware so we're having to make the best of a bad situation.

Oh well, there goes the weekend.
