Moving an Operating System from a SATA drive to a SAS drive part way through migration
Posted on 2011-09-25
I have un-intentionally installed SBS 2011 Standard in migration mode to the point of DCPROMO on a SATA drive (on IBM X3400M3).
The OS should have ended up on a SAS drive.
Is it best to complete the whole migration first then move the OS to the SAS drive or should I move the OS before doing anything else?
Note: This is a live network with SBS2003 and SBS2011 and I need to make sure I avoid disrupting workflow and avoid complicating the migration process.
I have a Storage Craft backup of the server just after the DCPROMO.
Can I use this to do the move?
I am not sure what are the do's and don’ts at this point. I.e. what would happen if I re-installed SBS 2-11 from scratch on to the correct drive?
