I am planning on moving my file server to a windows 2008 cluster and wouldlike to know if there are any issues i should expect. . I am going to name the cluster the same as my file server so that I don't have to change any mapping etc. I know I will have to remove the current file server from the domain or rename it.

Software/Hardware used:
Windows Server 2008

1. Security and share permissions – You should use a file copy application or tool that will save security permissions and share permissions. One tool is the robocopy (Robust File Copy) tool found in Server 2008 or <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en”>Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools</a>.

2. IP Issues – DNS name is one thing you have already accounted for, but make sure none of your client machines use the actual IP address to connect to the shares.
