I am attempting to cut over my IIS server to a new machine in my network. The purpose for the cut over is to save money on electricity.
I have 3 machines in my network.
a) 1 is for internal use only for my pc's within my domain.
b) 1 is for an external DNS and email for my clients.
c) 1 is a webserver for se of my clients.
I am wanting to move my webserver from machine c (WEB.GDS-AU.COM - 192.168.16.3) to machine b (NS1.GDS-AU.COM - 192.168.16.6). This will save electricity by cutting out WEB and therefore reducing my electricity consumption.
So far I have installed IIS onto machine NS1.
I have copied all my web page data from WEB to NS1
I have setup each website on NS1's IIS manager.
I have turned off all relevant services on WEB.
After having done these steps, the websites fail to work on NS1.
Can I ask someone's help in resolving this cutover issue ?.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
