Move data from old server to new server

I am changing out a sbs2k8 server with a win2k12 core running hyper v.  There are about 30 host connected to the domain. I am planning on creating a new domain for the win2k12 environment. Some of the files have NTFS permissions on them. What is the best method of moving the files over to the new file server? I will reset all NTFS permissions on the new file server in the new domain.

In your planned approach, you will have a large transition including restoring ownership permissions, settings etc.

Your better approach would be to join the 2k12 hosted VM as another DC transition the shares/files using DFS based replication.

Then look at changing/renaming the AD.  IS IT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY?

Or are you virtualizing the SBS into hyper-v where one can be operational at the same time?

The SBS2008 box will not be virtualized, I will have to separate AD one on the SBS 2k8 with the olddomain.local and another AD on the new win2k12 newdomain.local. The two servers will not see each other.

Lets try it from the begining.  What it is you want to end up with at the conclusion of this process?

Your setup now has SBS 2008 + 10 systems joined to it.

You acquired a new system windows 2012 core hyper-v role

SBS can not have trust relationships so transferring accounts that way is not an option.

I need to end up with 200 gig of data moved to new server with no NTFS permissions.

If ntfs permissions/ownership is not an issue, robocopy can be used with the /copy:dt is all that you would run

robocopy win2k8_driveletter:\path \\win2k12_vm_host\driveleter_or_share\path  /E /ZB /copy:dt (/L)


What about users? Do you need them created with the existing passwords, or are you starting with the new domain from scratch adding users and computers as they go.
