I have a client where I will be replacing their old sbs 2003 server for a new unit. I had originally planned to run a migration but the old server is in such a bad way that i am afraid it going to cause me more grief as the server is so slow & unreliable. I have decided to go with a fresh install but want to make sure I have everything covered.
His data is no problem as I will simply backup to external drive. My main concern is emails. There are 10 users & I was considering extracting the emails to a pst file from each of the client’s machine. I would then manually connect each of the clients to the new server via the "connect" process & then re-import the pst data.
Does this sound the right way to go about this & are there any other factors I should be considering?
