I need to refresh some servers and have a few questions. They are currently dell servers running Windows 2003 and will refresh them to new dell R710's on Windows 2008.
-If I want to keep the same name would all I need to do is to bring down the old server, build up the new server. Name it the same name and make sure IP address is the same. Is there anything I need to do in AD after this? Do I need to do any type of SID changes or anything?
-also I have a USB harddrive that was a file share that has security permissions on it. If I unplug it and plug it into a new server how can I maintain the security permissions on it? Or do I have to set all the permissions over again.
