I would like to know what is the best way to do this :
I have a SBS 2003 running, would like to use the new SBS 2008 server as a backup and have it ready just in case. I would like to copy everything from the old server to the new server, same user, rights, groups, printers etc., nothing crazy. What is the best way to accomplish this :
I heard replicate the SBS 2003, no idea how.
Also before I give a new SBS 2008 server a name, what name should I give it, I guess it has to be different that the SBS 2003 server name.
