Francis had an aging Windows 2003 server purchased over 8 years ago. It was long out of warranty and he was worried it could become unreliable. He purchased a new Dell T100 server to replace it. Francis was quite IT literate but after reading through all Microsoft's documentation on migrating servers he felt a little out of his depth! Francis gave us a call after finding our website through Google and explained what he wanted to achieve:
- Minimise downtime during the migration
- Migrate Active Directory to the new server
- Ensure there would be no data loss
I arranged with Francis to meet him at his offices later that week and perform the migration.
