Getting a new server need advice on migration.
Posted on 2011-09-30
Our organization is going to buy a new server in the coming weeks with SBS 2011. Currently we have ancient HP SBS 2003 box that has been nothing but a nightmare for me since I started this job, not even going to get into it. That being said we have also lost some staff so by the time we get the new server we will only have 4 or 5 active employees. At certain times of the year when we have interns and such we have up to 14 users.
I am wondering what the easiest way to migrate will be. I don't really need the old employee's email so I will just need to migrate the 4.
We also have about 10 shared folders with 150GB of files and sub folders.
I was thinking I could maybe just recreate the user accounts on the new server since there are so few at the moment and then just import the email. Would this be the correct way to go about this?
Any advice is appreciated.
