70-282 Exam Cram (migration) Prepare the destination server [Microsoft Small Business Specialist Primer book]

good morning all – Harrybbbb here – the publisher of the above title. I am just posting up a passage as a virtual book reading.

Configure the Destination Server

First you must install SBS 2003 on the destination server. (See the above section, “First-Time System Installation,” in this chapter.) While filling out information for server setup, make sure you:

·                       Enter a different DNS and NetBIOS name than the source server.

·                       Have DHCP disabled on the source server.

·                       Enter an IP address on the same subnet as the source server.

·                       Install ADMT on the destination server—the ADMT is located on Disc 1 on the SBS 2003 disk set at D:\I386\Admt\Admigration .msi (where D represents the drive letter) .

·                       To configure ADMT, you must run this in the command prompt:

Net Localgroup “Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access” Everyone /Add

Net Localgroup “Pre-Windows 2000 Compatible Access” “Anonymous Logon” /Add

·           To migrate user accounts you must also run:

Runas /Netonly /user:SourceDomainName\Administrator “Mmc\”%Program Files%\ Active Directory Migration Tool\Migrator.msc\””

-replace SourceDomainName with the source domain name

This will cover Windows 2000, as well as SBS 4.5 and NT 4.0 servers.

IMPORTANT: Account names are automatically truncated if they are longer then 20 characters and will cause migration errors.
