We have a project planned to migrate thousands of documents from one file server (running a legacy version of Windows Server), to a new file server (running a new supported version of Windows server).
If you have been involved in such a project before, what are the likely issues the end users may face once the data is migrated over? And any tips on how to minimize end user disruption? Permissions *should* stay the same, I was just thinking of any possible problems once the migration has taken place and ways to avoid this.
Out of interest, what tools/scripts did you use to move the files over?
