Help with migrating SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 with only the source server's hard drive
Posted on 2012-08-29
I've scoured the internet for about two days now trying to find a solution for restoring or migrating active directory to a new server without an actual backup. We have an SBS 2003 server that is no longer functioning - the hard drive controller on the motherboard is dead and the system is too old to get replacement parts.
Even though there was a decent amount of file corruption on the drive, I've managed to recover the majority of it and have seen no sign of the drive itself being bad, so I was hoping it might be possible to somehow bring the Active Directory over to the new server so that we don't have to reconfigure the entire domain.
Thanks in advance!
