    Server migration help

    Hi,

    I have recently purchased a new server for our small business, our currently server acts as pretty much everything, a file server, AD, DNS etc.

    I now need to move everything over from the old server to the new server

    What is the best way for me to migrate everything over in your option?

    There is only about 200gb of shared files to transfer.

    Should I just a run a full windows server backup and restore it to the new server?

    Or

    migrate everything bit by bit using server migration tools?

    or

    is there another method you could suggest?

    All advised/help appreciated

    Thanks
    Ben

      It really will depend on your own specific situation and what kinds of files you are moving. For example, one thing to keep in mind when migrating loads of files is that links to other documents can break. I found a tool called LFA that can help ensure your links stay intact during migrations.
