Prep’in for migratin’


 For any server that you are thinking is a candidate for a SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 migration, next time you are doing maintenance, download two things as these are prereq’s for migration to SBS 2011 standard.


1.  Powershell from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=188528


2. Microsoft Baseline Configuration Analyzer 2.0 from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=188529


You’ll need them both as part of the migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011



That said I should warn you that installing these puts a new section in the monitoring email.  Not to worry though.

    Is the Baseline Configuration Analyzer different and seperate from the Best Practises Analyzer ?

    Yup the BCA is not the BPA.

    Installed both on my SBS2003 Std. Now what?
    No products are listed in the “Select a product” dropdown.
    I’ll be one of the ones going from 2003 to 2011…

    Now wait for the RTM of SBSv7 as the rest of the source tool components come with the V7(aka SBS 2011 standard) release.

    What’s the best way to migrate an old 2003 SBS to a new 2011 SBS on new hardware. The old server (Pentium 4) won’t cut it.
