    Moving shares to another Windows 2003 Server

    Hey everyone,

    What is the best way to migrate my data from my exisiting Windows 2003
    Server DC to my new Windows 2003 DC. I want to be able to move all my
    shares, including any existing permissions. Here's are config:

    W2K3 Acitive Directory Domain
    ALL Servers runnying W2K3
    Source server will be taken offline

    Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Vinod

    Does the File Migration Tool work for W2K3 to W2K3 servers? No NT Server
    involved here.

    Thanks,

    Re: Moving shares to another Windows 2003 Server

    Hi Vinod,

    There are several methods to migrate the data from one server to another.

    Method 1: FSMT
    ==============
    This tool can also be used between Windows Server 2003. For more
    information, please refer to the following articles.

    Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...ocs/msfsc.mspx


    Overview of the Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserv...ocs/msfst_over
    view.mspx


    Method 2: Copy Data
    =================

    You can also use Robocopy.exe to copy data from one server to another and
    then using Permcopy.exe to migrate share permissions. Use the /SEC
    parameter in Robocopy.exe to copy NTFS permissions from the source folder
    to the destination folder. After you finish moving the data, share the
    folders on the target server (either manually or by using scripts), and
    then use Permcopy.exe to copy share permissions from the source server to
    the target server.

    Permcopy.exe and Robocopy.exe are available on the Windows Server 2003
    Deployment Kit companion CD. For more information about Permcopy.exe and
    Robocopy.exe, click Tools in Help and Support Center for Windows Server
    2003, and then click "Windows Resource Kit Tools Help."

    - Advantages:

    These tools are available as part of the Windows Server 2003 Deployment
    Kit.

    This method is simple if you are migrating a small amount of data.

    Robocopy.exe gives you a number of options for migrating data, including
    the following:

    Using file names, wildcard characters, paths, or file attributes to
    include or exclude source files as candidates for migrating.

    Controlling the number of times that Robocopy.exe retries an operation
    after encountering a recoverable network error.

    Scheduling copy jobs to run automatically.


    - Disadvantages:

    Files are copied across the network, which can impact network bandwidth.

    This method should not be used to migrate encrypted files.

    If users are accessing files as the files are copied, you must make
    arrangements to migrate files that change while the copy occurs.

    This method might take a long time to complete if you are migrating large
    amounts of data.

    This method does not migrate shared folder information to the destination
    server. As a result, folders that are shared on the source server are not
    shared when you copy or restore them on the destination server. You must
    share the destination folders manually or by using scripts, and then use
    Permcopy.exe to migrate any share permissions.

    Others: Use third-party migration tools, hardware, or services provided by
    hardware vendors
    ===========================================================
    A number of third-party migration tools can automate the entire migration
    process. These migration tools typically offer features such as bandwidth
    throttling, scheduling, incremental file migration, and monitoring. Many
    hardware vendors also provide hardware solutions and services that can
    assist you in migrating data.


    For more information, please refer to the following article:
