We have two offices that have til now been running off of one small business server 2003 but have recently installed a second sbs at the second site. We need to move half of the users from the original small business server to the new one. Any ideas if it is possible to do this easily or have we got set everyone on the new server from scratch

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1st – Are they going to be the same domain? Share files? Replicate databases? Share backups?

If you answered ‘yes’ more than once, then it is very straight forward. Make both Domain Controllers, let the AD replicate, and publish gloabal catalogue on both.

Probably would make most sense to have the respective users use the ‘local’ server for their network share/ user directory.

If you use ‘Roaming Profiles’ the users get their standard login even when logging in t the other office.

    I could be wrong but I think that SBS only allows you to have one server on the network/domain. Probably would be better to upgrade the licence and join the new server to the same domain as the first and let AD replicate across.
