Migrate Settings and Data

Updated: September 22, 2009

Applies To: Windows Essential Business Server

After you install Windows EBS, you can migrate settings and data for the following features:

Shared folders and data

You can use the Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit to help you migrate data. For more information about using the toolkit, see “Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=156840).

You can also use a command such as Xcopy.exe to move data folders. For more information about moving data folders, see “Moving Data Folders in Windows Small Business Server 2003” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157080).

Scripts and data folders related to Active Directory Domain Services should also be migrated. For more information about migrating data related to Active Directory Domain Services, see “Migrating Active Directory Domain Services Scripts, Roaming Profiles, Redirected Folders, and Home Directories to Windows Essential Business Server” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157082).

Fax Service

If you are using the Fax service with Windows SBS 2003, you should migrate your fax settings and data to Windows EBS. To use the Fax service on a server, you must install the Fax Server role. For more information about installing the Fax Server role, see “Installing Fax Components” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157087).

To collect the information that you need to configure the Fax service on a server, you can use the information and worksheets in “Step-by-Step Guide to Configuring and Using Fax on Windows Small Business Server 2003” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157088).

DHCP Server

If you use a DHCP Server, you should migrate the DHCP Server service from your existing DHCP server to the Management Server of Windows EBS. For more information about migrating the DHCP Server service, see “Migrating DHCP Server Service to Windows Essential Business Server” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157095).

Domain Name System (DNS)

To promote optimal performance and reliability of your servers that are running Windows EBS, you need to migrate the Domain Name System (DNS) to Windows EBS when you finish the server installation process.

For more information about migrating DNS settings, see “Migrating the DNS role to Windows Essential Business Server” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95814).

Exchange Server

To ensure that your users benefit from all of the features that are provided in Microsoft® Exchange Server 2007, you must migrate the existing configuration settings and information to Windows EBS. For more information about how to migrate the configuration settings, see “Migrating Microsoft Exchange Server to Windows Essential Business Server” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=157089).

To finish migrating Exchange Server, you must remove Exchange Server from an administrative group. For more information about removing Exchange Server, see “How to remove the first Exchange Server 2003 computer from the administrative group” (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=164666).

Trusted certificates

If you purchased a trusted certificate, and it is available to export, you can move the certificate to the Security Server of Windows EBS. To do this, export the certificate from the server that is running Windows SBS 2003 (Source Server), import it to the Security Server of Windows EBS, and then configure the external Web listener for Remote Web Workplace to use the certificate.

To export the certificate
  1. On the Source Server, click Start, click Run, type mmc.exe, and then click OK.

  2. Click File, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  3. Click Add, select Certificates, and then click Add again.

  4. In the Certificates Snap-in dialog box, click Computer Account, and then click Next.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Expand Certificates, expand Personal, and then click Certificates.

  8. Right-click the certificate that is issued to your Web site (for example: remote.adventure-works.com), click All Tasks, and then click Export.

    noteNote
    Multiple certificates might exist with the same name. Ensure that you choose a certificate that has a valid expiration date and that was issued by a trusted authority. If you are not sure which one to use, open Internet Information Services (IIS), determine which certificate IIS is using on the server, and then choose that certificate.

  9. In the Certificate Export Wizard, click Next.

  10. Click Yes, export the private key, and then click Next.

  11. Click Include all certificates in the certificate path if possible and click Export all extended properties, and then click Next. Do not click Delete the private key if the export is successful.

  12. Type a password to protect the certificate file, and then click Next.

  13. Choose a location to save the .pfx file (for example, C:\trustedcert.pfx), and then click Next.

  14. Finish the wizard.

After you export the certificate from the Source Server, you must import the certificate to the Security Server.

To import the certificate
  1. On the Security Server, click Start, click Run, type mmc.exe, and then click OK.

  2. Click File, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  3. In the Add or Remove Snap-ins dialog box, select Certificates, and then click Add.

    The Password page provides the option Mark this key as exportable. If you want to prevent exporting of the key from the Security Server, do not select this option.

  11. On the Certificate Store page, click Place all certificates in the following store, ensure that Certificate Store is set to Personal (the default settings), and then click Next.

  12. On the Completing the Certificate Import Wizard page, click Finish.

After you import the certificate, you must configure the external Web listener for Remote Web Workplace to use the certificate.
