Migrate sbs2003 to sbs2011
Posted on 2012-03-27
I had no luck with a migration from sbs2003 to 2011 the way microsoft advices. Basically everything got stuck after the import of the migration file and the new server didn't finished the installation.
I wonder is it not possible just to do a clean install of sbs2011 with some kind of domain and somehow copy manually AD data like users and profiles and domain-joined computers from the old computer to the fresh installed computer with an "USB stick". This instead of connectiong the two servers (with a migration file to a server in the setup/installation state) and drag-drop the users from one OU to the other?
