IT Camp - Server Migration Overview

  1. 1. Windows Server Migration
  2. 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. 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. 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
  5. 5. Migration Process Overview TechNet Migration Portal Migration Guidelines Discover Prepare Temp Storage Export ImportSource Server Settings Settings Destination Server Transfer Configuration Export-SmigServerSetting and Shares Import-SmigServerSetting Send-SmigServerData Receive-SmigServerData
  6. 6. Migration Server Setup
  7. 7. Destination Server Setup Windows Server 2008 R2 Step 1 Step 2 Step 3• Add the Windows Generate Use SmigDeploy Server Migration Windows Server with appropriate Tools Feature Migration Tools switches deployment folder for appropriate source OS Use SmigDeploy.exe located at %Windir%System32ServerMigrationTools SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture X86 /os WS03 /path <deployment folder path> SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS03 /path <deployment folder path> SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture X86 /os WS08 /path <deployment folder path> SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS08 /path <deployment folder path>

  10. 10. File Server Migration
  11. 11. File Server Migration Pre-Migration Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4• On the Source: Inventory files, On the Destination: Notify users and – Back up full server settings, DFS Install OS and ask them to stop or system state namespaces and migration tools using the server – If you are migrating replication settings DFS, back up ADDS Join domain Proceed to to be migrated Install the same migration Determine the File File Services Services installed
  12. 12. File Server MigrationStep 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4On the Source: Migrate local Migrate server On the Freeze Users and Groups identity Destination: administrative Migrate the data Optional – Configure DFS changes from source to Migrate IP replication Export settings destination address Import settings servers twice**On the Destination server run: Receive-SmigServerDataOn the Source server run: Send-SmigServerData -ComputerName <DestinationServer> -SourcePath d:users -DestinationPath d:sharesusers -Recurse -Include All -Force
