To Migrate or RebuildLocked
I need some advice here. Do I attempt to migrate or rebuild?
A company I was asked to work with is using a server they purchased in 1999 and it’s running NT4 SP4. The work stations are using a hodge podge of XPHome and Pro. The router is Cisco. Obviously it’s a workgroup and not a domain.
Nope, not joking. I also doubt the old server could handle migrating or transfer to a new machine. It’s pretty much done.
To save myself grief, I’d have NO problem just lending them a server with WS2003SBS and just rebuild the system&network.
If it weren’t for their mission critical program.
They use UniData/Wintegrate. It’s fairly standard issue with the exception of about six custom modules. Right now that old server uses UniData 3.6 and the company that provided them the software also provided them version 6.1. But the db is all for this company.
If anybody can advise me on how to get the database moved or copied off to a new server using WS2003SBS and UniData 6.1.7 – without it getting lost or corrupting down the road. I will cheerfully recompile & recatalog if I have to – if somebody could point in the right direction I would be grateful. The vendor has all but refused to help or advise; I’m reasonably certain their customizations though are included with the software they sold/provided this company.
