SBS 2003 to Server 2008 Migration
Posted on 2013-10-16
We have a company who hired an IT guy for a corporate environment to replace their aging SBS 2003 server. He migrated the server over to Server 2008. The company states it took him over 30 hours to do this. Looks like he migrated over AD, files ok as the new computers can now log into that server.
But they are now experiencing even worse issues then with the old server. Before they would have to constantly have to reboot the old server because computers would lose their connections, lose drive mappings, lose connection to line of business application, etc.
It seems the only quick fix would be a reboot.
Now the new server is having random issues. They are having to reboot randomly like every other day, twice a week. Sometimes computers will log off randomly on their own. I looked in event viewer and it there are alot of group policy errors.
Could the migration have been done wrong or something?
Would like to get some feedback on what to start on or where to begin.
Thanks in advance.
