Hello Experts,

I will need to migrate our Stand-Alone Windows 2003 Standard Edition Server SP2 onto a new server. The old Server is a single Domain Controller running Active Directory and Exchange 2003 Enterprise Edition. I perform daily system state backups using both Windows backup tool and Backup Exec 2010. I also perform full VSS backup and commands to stop and start exchange services prior to snapshop creation of images.

I will be using Symantec System Recovery 2011 Server Edition with the dissimilar hardware function enabled to perform the migration. I will appreciate it if anyone can give me any information I should be aware of before I perform the migration.

Any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Jose

if you'll use an imaging sw that allows you to restore on different hw... there's nothing to tell. just don'change computer name, ip or anything else, if you are given this opportunity. ad dc are not strictly bound to hw...  remember to shut down old dc before firing up the new one.
