FRESH INSTALL SMALL BUSINESS SERVER EXISTING DOMAIN
Posted on 2013-11-29
I have had enough of the trouble shooting and rebuilding of this server and after a difficult "swing migration" which was ultimately a success but never quite what I had expected. I would like to do a fresh install of SBS 2011
Many reasons - mostly I own but here I am
1. Clients - do not effect their profiles. remove from domain - rejoin domain looks as if everything is the same.
2. Preserve email
Some gotch ya's. ( I think) I performed most of the storage tasks on the Server storage tab. In the console. For reason's unknown to me I moved data that would have benefited from high performance RAID drives to a run of the mill consumer grade terabyte drive. One I am especially concerned about is the Redirected folders. I thought I had reversed this, but I am having sporadic problems with files not being available when the server is not visible.
Client wise I have 3 PC's with mail and data I want to preserve and and a couple of Macs I do not care about.
