The effort/complexity trying to transfer, might take longer.

Are you consolidating systems. Lack of space,
Clustering? Database mirroring?
See if you could consolidate functions on fewer systems, to give you the opportunity to ....

Presumably, you've already got down all the inter-dependencies and dependencies, and where what runs......

How many systems do you have?.
Does the location have the space to pull a system, or two out of the rack and connect it to power, network while you untangle the wiring/arrangement.

The removal of two makes untangling, fixing the remaining much easier...

Thanks for the reply, we have over 35 web servers most virtual from what i understand from the client, two of them are massive since they have databases, and yes clusters and Database Mirroring are been used, I wanted also to consolidate all in small Virtual servers into two small servers but space is also a problem, Im trying to get all the servers out to a cloud storage for a month at least to give us plenty of time to arrange things as they should be and run fibers.

Are you able to temporarily consolidate the 33 sites on fewer systems?
The effort you will gave to put into moving them into the cloud will likely prove a point to remain out there.

The complexity depending your choices will require testing/validating each site to make sure it will function as expected.......

How many physical servers do you have?

Does each site represented by an individual VM.

We kind of gave up on the Idea, we will simply do the best we can and when the customer can we can setup a secondary data center for redundancy and fix this mess. thanks for the reply guys
