Hi have just finished doing the migration from server 2008 32bit to a new box 2008 r2.
I did the adprep, moving the dns and the fsmo roles. Now what is the best way to do the data and apps migration to the new box. We used the old server to run special apps for the business using it as also a file server. I am stuck now. I read about robocopy, microsoft migration tools and I also was looking into viceverse software. Can some please tell me the best and easiest way to go about it.

Thank You
Bob

File server can be easily migrated with FSMT - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/fsmt.aspx
If you need to migrate your business apps everything actually depends on the app itself. Some may require just copying of files, other require installation from the scratch, some can require SQL data migration etc...
