Standard Server 2003 Migration to SBS 2008 Part 4

Roger Crawford Roger Crawford Profile: Roger Crawford

I have had some questions about once you do the migration how do i get the users to show up in the SBS 2008 Console. Here is my reply to one of those questions and hopefully it will help those that is looking for this answer.

“In your SBS 2008 Console go to Users and then over to the right you will see “Change User Role for user accounts” select this and then this will start a wizard. Select Standard User and “Replace User Permissions or Roles” hit next here you will see the users on your SBS 2008 Server but if you check the box that says “Display all user accounts in AD” this will show you your users you are looking for. You highlight the ones you want and add them and the wizard will do the rest. You will have to do this for the ones you want as Standard users and also again for the ones you want to have Administrative permissions. Also if you are wanting your computers and Servers to show up in their respective lists you add these to the SBS Computers and Servers OU’srespectively and then they will show up in your SBS 2008 console.”

Til later just Roger

    Hi Roger! First of all, thank you for the great migration guide, really good work. But i'm missing one thing: What is the prefered way to migrate the exisitng exchange 2003 mailboxes (i.e. Enterprise Version running on a Windows 2003 Memberserver) to exchange 2007 system of the sbs 2008? Is there a way to do an online replication after the steps of your migration guide or must this be done manual per Exmerge or similiar? I've to do a migration tomorrow and it would be very kind if i could get a clever tip from you. Thx for your advice, Best regards Sebastian Sorry about missing this Sebastian I have not did this but you would think that you could do the Mail Move like you would normally when migrating between Exchange servers. If you was doing a Migration from the existing domain and using the Steps to bring a SBS2008 Server into a existing domain you should be able to do the migration like normal but that is just speculation upon my part. If your cresting a new domain and moving that way then you could esmerge the email out and bring that back into the SBS 2008 box. Roger
