Company information

 

Information to provide Description

Company information (optional)

Name and address of the business. This information is used for settings on your server, and it is not sent to Microsoft.

You can edit the company information later in the Windows SBS Console: Click the Help list menu, and then click Edit Company Information.

Source Server information

 

Information to provide Description

Domain administrator account name

The user account name of a domain administrator in the existing domain.

ImportantWichtig
This account must be a member of the Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, and Schema Admins groups. However, the default security group for the account cannot be one of these three groups.

noteHinweis
We recommended that you create a new administrator account on the Source Server for migration instead of using the built-in Administrator account.

Password

noteHinweis
We recommend that you use a strong password for the domain account.

Source Server name

The name of the server from which you are migrating settings and data.

Source domain name

The DHCP Server service is running on the Source Server

Select this box if the DHCP Server service is running on the Source Server. We recommend that you run the DHCP Server service on the Destination Server. If the DHCP Server service is running on the Source Server, the service will be moved automatically. If the DHCP Server service is running on another server or device, you must manually disable the service.

noteHinweis
The domain administrator user name and password that you supply in the answer file are also set as the Directory Services Restore Mode (DSRM) user name and password. If you need to log on to the server by using DSRM, you must use the same user name and password that you specified during migration. These passwords do not synchronize. Continue to use the old password to log on to the server by using DSRM after you change the administrator account password in Windows SBS 2011 Standard .

Run the Answer File Tool

Run the Answer File Tool to create the migration answer file.

To run the Answer File Tool, you must have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later installed on the computer that you are using to create the answer file. To download and install Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, see Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86).

To create the migration answer file

  3. Type the information that you previously collected.

  4. Save the answer file as sbsanswerfile.xml.

Copy the migration answer file to removable media

ImportantWichtig
You must complete this step before starting the migration.

Copy the migration answer file to the root partition of a removable storage device, such as a USB flash drive. Then, insert it into a USB port on the Destination Server before you start migrating to Windows SBS 2011 Standard . If the Windows SBS 2011 Standard installation wizard detects a migration answer file, the migration starts automatically.

ImportantWichtig
The answer file contains logon and password information that can be used to log on to your server. To help protect your server, when you finish migrating to Windows SBS 2011 Standard , delete the answer file.

noteHinweis
If the Destination Server is a virtual machine, you can create a virtual disk and save the migration answer file there. Then insert the virtual disk into the Destination Server before you start migration mode setup.
