Ordered a new server from Dell (Poweredge T710). Our Dell sales rep insisted that SBS 2k11 would be supported on the server. After recieving the server, I started the installation of SBS 2k11 (also purchased from Dell). After I installed Open Manage, I saw some alerts regarding the CPU. Anyhow I called Dell about this and that is when they informed me that SBS 2k11 is not supported on that server. Well, it would be all fine and dandy if I did not already get part way through the migration process on the new server. Please see steps below for what I have done so far. Please let me know what would be the best idea in this situation. I was told by Dell that what they advise I do is install SBS 2k8 instead of 2k11 and I would be fine with that except I have already started the migration.
Basically I have completed Steps 1-5 on Dematzers guide below. (BTW nice article)
If you are up to step 5 of my guide then you already have promoted the SBS2011 server to a domain controller and have Exchange installed, so to backup now would mean removing Exchange 2010 and DCPROMO'ing
