I went the SBS Migration route from a SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 server and when it was all said an done I really questioned the approach. It was only a 20-user network and I think it would have been easier and less time consuming to not migrate. To simple start with a fresh server and manually recreate the users and shares then on a slow weekend copy the data from one server to the other and rejoin the workstations to the new server.
Any thoughts on this? I have a couple more to do this year. Both about a 10-user network. A SBS 2008 and a SBS 2003. Is "migration" really the best way to go or is it easier to start fresh and manually transfer things over?
