Currently I have a Windows SBS 2008 and we planned on reinstalling this server with WIndows Server 2011 Essentials. Presently our SBS 2008 server is running active directory, dns and etc. I wanted to know the following:
1) If i reinstall the server how will the client machines react? Because when you login to a client machine using active directory it usually creates a users folder called username.domain I want to know if after i remove the client from the domain and have them re-join to the reinstalled server if it will work using that same profile assuming that it joins the domain name stays the same.
2) Also is there any way to simply export all the active directory/DNS/DHCP server info and re-import it after the reinstall?
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
