I have a 2003 server that I use for file shares/ user profiles etc. I have new server that have server 2008 operating system installed. I want to migrate all the data off the older server to the new server. The current server is a member server and the new server will also be a member server.
I would like to use the same name for the new server that I am current using for the 2003 server. I know that I cannot have two servers with the same name…… I just want to keep that name because of the older applications are using the old server name. I am thinking to join the server to the domain and after the file migration to re-name the new server with the current 2003 server name.
What is the most effect way to accomplish this task?
