I am in the process of moving a server from Windows server 2003 standard to windows server 2008 standard
I have ran the 32 bit adprep on the server 2003
I have backed up system state backup and user profiles using the backup function in windows server 2003. They will be in one backupfile
The profiles are not on C drive, but are on F data drive on the server
Once I have installed server 2008 on the server, do I just restore the file created with the backup including state backup and the profile files? Does this restore all users to their original 2003 profiles and permissions on the 2008 server? Users could then log on, and all will be the same for them?
