Server 2003 setup

By corpman ·
I just recently was asked to install a new Dell server 2003 computer. The one that I am replacing is also a Dell 2003 computer. I would like to know how to take all the settings off the old computer and install them on the new one. Do I need to add the new computer on the network first? Make it part of the current domain?
Anyones' help is greatly appreciated.

sames specs on both server?

by al3x In reply to Server 2003 setup

do you know if they have the same exact specs?

if so then use ASR (image)that comes with Windows 2003. ASR does have it's limitation, otherwise purchase a real imaging software such as acronis or ghost or even just swap hdd if and only if they have the same hardware.

What do you mean by xfer settings? Permissions, Directory structure, Active Directory? There many tools available depending on what you want to move.
