    Small Buisness Server 03

    Hi All

    basically I am trying a migration from one SBS to another for new Hardware. I have got all the FSMO roles transfered, I had to force the schema. The exchange mailboxes are all in .pst form and all data moved.

    My problem I unplug the old server no one can log on. Plug it back in as a GC everybody works.

    If I DCpromo the server out, when i start it the old server says it is last server in the network. If I chance it will it work?

    DNS and DHCp are running on the new server and all working.

    I know that swing migration is the preferred way, but the customer does nto have a spare server and have asked me to do this.

    any thoughts?

    Oh and everything looks good on the AD as well.

      Hopefully you followed the instruction in MS KB 830253 for migrating a SBS server. If you still have the migration tool installed you can hopefully still migrate the computer accounts as it sounds that you haven’t done this.

      transfering FSMO roles isn’t really the best way to migrate. Swing migration is the best way even if all you do is create a new server name, netbios name, for the new server and just use ADMT and Exmerge.
