  • 1. Windows Server Migration
  • 2. Migration vs. In-Place Upgrade• Migration moves configurations and data – Sources an existing server – Targets a computer with a clean installation of an Operating System• In-place Upgrade replaces the Operating System on an existing computer – Configurations and data are carried forward – Just the OS is replaced
  • 3. Benefits of Migration• Provides a transition path from: – x86 to x64 OS (WS08R2 is x64 only) – Physical to virtual (and vice versa) – Full server to server core (and vice versa)• Clean operating system installs exhibit more stability• Reduces risk and downtime – OS installation and most migration tasks are performed while the source server is still live – Allows migration verification and performance benchmarking prior to bringing the target server “online” – Source server remains available if migration fails
  • 4. Migration Guidelines• End-to-end instructions for all phases: – Preparation – Migration – Validation – Rollback – Post migration steps (finalize, retire source server)• Focused on minimizing downtime and changes to the source server• Utilize both new and existing tools
