Network switching between servers fior migration with same router.
Posted on 2011-04-23
I am doing an offline migration from an sbs 2003 server with ip of 192.168.16.3 to 2 new sbs 2011 standard and premum boxes.
I am trying to use the same router with the same config and dhcp/dns on both mahcines with the same scope/config.
I then plan to either power off one machine at a time or stop the dhcp and dns services on one server at a time.
I am doing this so I can accomplish some file and other migrations to an external USB drive on the old sbs 2003 server to the new 2011 servers.
OR, is there a way to keep both servers up on the same subnet but different static server lan ip's?
There are no VPN's on this machine or the new prem box
I just need this as a temp situation until I turn off the sbs 2003 box.
