Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2 File and Print Service Migration
Posted on 2012-08-15
My organization is currently planning to migrate/change our File and Print Servers from
Windows Server 2003 SP2 32-Bit Enterprise to Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Enterprise.
Our File Servers contains roaming profiles for all users, they also contain folder shares accessed by users with the means of domain based DFS (Windows 2000 Mode).
We plan implement FSRM on the roaming profiles on the new Windows Server 2008 R2 platform as our current quota manager isn’t compatible with the new platform.
I urgently need a detailed workable solution to this procedure, the folder structures on the new servers will be different from the old platform.
My major concern are the file and folder permissions on all the various shares across the servers and secondly the printers compatibility with server 2008.
