Hi we have just taken delivery of a new server DELL Power Edge R420 with OS SBS 2011

The person who was going to install and set up and migrate users, mail accounts and data from our old sbs2003 server has had an accident and now cant do the task which was scheduled for Monday 20th Dec.

We are based in North Harrow - HA2 7SA

Can anyone suggest someone who might help - I am happy to do this remotley and over the phone while in front of the servers

Thank you

Migrating from an old server to a brand new server is not a task you would start and finish in one day unless you already know the network environment and many important things that exist on the old server. Jumping into this cold is not the best approach to migrating to a new server.

The previous person probably was very familiar with the network setup and client. I would not suggest bring in someone totally new and expecting to complete this process right away with no problems.

With that precaution in mind, there are many companies that will perform that perform that type of task. Here is info on that.
