SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 migration issue?
Posted on 2013-12-27
I have a Dell OEM SBS 2003 server and am installing a new Dell OEM SBS 2011 server. I've read the migration process is the preferred method, but the existing domain is domain.local.
The new server will have SSL certificates for remote email and VPN access and I understand many CAs won't issue a cert if there is a .local.
Will the migration process copy the FQDN (including the .local) to the new server? (I'm assuming it will)
If so, is there any way to either prevent that from happening or rename post migration? (I'm assuming it would require a re-install to rename)
I'm ready to pull the trigger whether it's a migration or new installation, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
