Server Migration

By mcsepit ·
I need to move files from server x to server y. The problem is how do I deal with broken links within excel documents etc. I can not keep the same server name and we use UNC instead of map drives.

Does anyone know of a script or 3rd party util?

Use Microsoft DFS (Distrubted file system) It publishes a folder structure in Active Directory allowing you to point databases, shared drives, printers, almost anything to the DFS structure. Then behind the sceen you can change where the files or resources in DFS and the UNC never changes. You can have multiple file servers and folders all on the same unc etc....

Is there is possible to name the DFS root the server name?
