Failed SBS 2008 migration
Posted on 2011-03-16
I attempted to upgrade SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 and it has failed miserably. The install was going smoothly however after a few hours we lost power and the install failed after transferring the FSMO roles. The documentation after reboot said to re-install the OS which I attempted and it failed during hte DCPROMO process as the new server had already transferred the FSMO roles.
My question is:
Is there a way to re-take the FSMO roles back to the SBS 2003 server, remove the new server from AD and re-start the upgrade procedure? Or am I facing a restore which is going to kill me?
