File server migration
Posted on 2016-09-30
we have a windows 2003 file server. we are planning to migrate it to a windows 2012 file server cluster.
The following data is currently hosted on the current file server.
1. Users roaming profiles are presently stored on the 2003 file server. on of the folders in the profile is redirected to the users home drive.
2. users home drives are also stored on the same file server in a folder x: and the home folder is configured in the properties of the user account in Active directory.
3. there is another folder on the file server mapped to the Y:
we seemlesly want to migrate all this data without users being interrupted for losing their profile of data.
we also want to get rid of the roaming profiles and only configure folder redirection for users folders in the profile.
appreciate if an expert can provide me with a sequence of steps of migrating data seemlessly
