Rebuild a Windows Small Business Domain or Recover it, that is the Question?

by Molshaka In reply to Does anyone really know?

<p>A 2003 Small Business Server is in rough shape.  Do you try to ??Backup the Domain?? (if that is a word), or do your backup the data and build it again from scratch.  </p>
<p>I have never done migrations?  I have done over 25 uprades from 2000 SBS to 2003 and they all have been done by recreating everything but the data ona new server.  We are experienced with this style but unexperienced with recovery of the old domain when we erase the server.</p>
<p>Here's a breakdown.  The server needs to be kept and redone.  They have 20 workstations, 20 users, File and Print Server, ISA 2000 Server.  I can't consider them a client yet, but he is allowing me to take this project on.......  Do I backup and recreate, or do I do some type of Role Transfer with an Active Directory Restore Twist, Administratively of course, all while holding my breath. blah blah, blah blah, blahhhhh blah.</p>
