Hello All -
I am in the middle of looking for the best solution to migrate a windows server 2003 Standard R2 to a NEW server and Windows server 2008 Standard R2.
My main concern is User data and permissions and security on all of the file shares. I have a test Lab setup and have been testing Robocopy and RichCopy. Rich copy so far has made the transfer to the new server but does NOT maintain the permissions atleast through the GUI. Robocopy when using (robocopy source dest. new target /copyall) seems to locate the file but then "skips" it and does not transfer the file.
So basically i am looking for any advice or experience doing this the tool you used and the outcome. Remember file permission retention is important.
