Best method of mirgrating SBS 2003 to a new server running sbs2003 r2 and Terminal severs
Posted on 2011-03-17
Just a quick one for you I want to mirgrate a customer of mine running SBS2003 to a new server running sbs2003 R2. I have never done this kind of mirgration before and its so important that downtime is to a minimum. I have read that a swing mirgration is very good for this senario but would like someone to confirm this for me if possible. The other method was to do a complete fresh install and manually recreate everything. My main concern is that I have had problems with SBS updates in the past causing problems on windows update doing strange things to new installs of SBS which is very bad in my opinion from MS.
If anyone has used the Mirgartion Swing method in this senario I would like to hear from you to find out how hard/ easy it is.
I also have to mirgrate a Teminal server to new hardware and would any help or tips anyone can provide as again I have never done this before.
