I currently have a windows 2000 Server that is my current file Server which users are all mapped to either by ip address or name..lets say current name is File Server.
I have configured a new 2008 R2 file server and named it File Server2.
I am planning to restore from a back up to ensure shares and permissions are static.
Unfortunately I need to keep the current File Server up and running until I implement the new one.
My question is when I have finished copying all files to new File Server2 I want to shut down the old Server and remane it the same as the original File Server.
I am hoping that the map drives will work on all users computers still.
Any suggestions, is this possible.
Thanks in Advance
