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.

Thanks

Microsoft allow up to 21 days so you can add a second SBS Server for migration purposes. Also, you can use a transitioning pack for the migration.

I thought that was the case if you use their migration procedure, no?

II want to install the new sbs 2011 server fresh.

Will you be changing the Active Directory domain name?
