I am replacing a Windows 2003 Server with a new server running Windows Server 2008R2. Can someone point me to a best practise article on how to approach the data move. Should I just create the old folder structure / Share and NTFS permission for all the data manually and just copy it over?
I guess i would also need to create a batch file to un-mount shares of the old server and mount shares to the new one.
Is there a more elegant solution for this? It's only 800GB of data but I still like to know how someone with 100 TB and thousands of shares would approach this.
