Changing our server IP or installing the SFTP operation onto a completely new virtual server

HI,

I am new to SFTP and never dealt with the same.
Can anyone help me how to transfer SFTP role from one server (2000) to another virtual machine (2008 R2) and what are the prereq for it.

Thank You!

What SFTP server software are you using, I do not believe, that is one of the standard software roles included with Windows 2008 R2.

How can I configure SFTP and transfer all roles and files from old server to new one I installed it in my new server?

You will need to list all the roles and files on the old server, and re-create on the new server.

You will have to check how the application is configured, what usernames have been created.

I do not know what the application is, I assume SSFTP, there must be a configuration application to it, to see how it's been configured, which folders are shared, with what permissions, which will give you an idea of what files and folders need to be copied.

By any chance is the Secure FTP software you used called MoveIT? Each third party application has it own requirements..

web server, Certificate, storage..

I do believe you can create FTP site in IIS and make it secure but 3rd party application seem to do a much better job at this
