Transfer Redirected Folders from SBS 2011 to 2012 Standard
Posted on 2013-10-07
I have a customer with transient electrical issues in a fairly new Server. After 2 power outages without adequate protection the server is becoming less and less reliable. I added a new Server 2012 Standard server to the domain, elevated it to DC, and transferred all Shared Directories to the new server. The last step before I decommission the old machine is to transfer the "Redirected" folders, which is my issue. How do I make the new server responsible for these directories with minimal impact on the customer? My first inclination would be to turn off redirection, allow the files to return to the host machine, then turn enable the feature on the new server. The issue there is that when I tested this on a single user the files did not return to the host machine. Is there some way I haven't thought of to pipe this data from one machine to the other without a PhD in GPO?
Thanks in advance,
