You cannot do it the way you described with any degree of success. Windows (workstation or server) simply does not work that way. Programs must be reinstalled.

You can use Acronis, PCMover or like programs to move an image to another computer or move installed programs to another computer.  I don't know if these work on a server, but I would be inclined not to try it.

Just set up the servers and re-install the programs.  ... Thinkpads_User

When it comes to licences and patents, that will be breaking the laws according to Microsoft, you are better off re-installing and activate the programs on a new server.

Also tat will save a lot of troubleshooting if something were to go wrong

Which Acronis can I use for copying Installed program from server to server?

http://www.acronis.com/download/

Please advice.

Which option?

Acronis copies images (generally OS plus applications). As noted earlier, licensing will come into it, so be careful there. You cannot use the same license twice or move an OEM license. You at least have to have licensing in place for the new server.

The posts I see for Acronis are for Workstation, so you should contact Acronis support to see which version to use.

Also, it being a server, my original recommendation still stands: Install the server and then reload the applications. It will probably work better. The post by Santasi24 carries the same recommendation.

Acronis used for backup the whole installed system for a particular computer.
Acronis can not move some installation to another computer!

You should re-install all program to another computer.
For simple tools(green software), you can just copy the folder to another computer, but most software will write a lot of entries to registry, so we can not only copy the folder to move it to another computer.

Re-install is the best way.

ok. But what about PCMover? Can I copy fully installed program from one server to another?

PCMover Maybe worked. I think depends on your installed software.
If your software works fine after moved, then it's ok.
I think most your application will works fine after moved.

Windows already have a tools can transfer the files/documents and settings to another computer.
You can get it from accessory-->system tools.
