SBS 2008 - Move to new server hardware
Posted on 2013-12-21
I am working for a client and must re-install their existing SBS2008 server installation onto new hardware. I have tried a bare metal restore onto the new server but it fails to boot after the restore. I suspect driver issues.
My other option is to do a scratch install of SBS2008 on the new server and then manually configure it for PCs, users etc.
I have heard that instead of having to take the client PCs off the old server domain and to re-add them onto the new server, its possible to change the security ids somehow.
Does anyone know anything about this?
