Finish Windows SBS 2011 Standard migration

Published: January 28, 2011

Applies To: Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard

ImportantImportant
Although the Migration Wizard does not migrate data for line-of-business (LOB) applications, you must use the procedures that are provided by your LOB application provider to migrate the data within the 21-day grace period that you have to complete the migration process and before you decommission the Source Server.

noteNote
If you want to keep the same system health and report settings as those that you have configured on Source Server, you need to manually recreate the reports on Destination Server. You also need to manually replicate the notification settings, such as email addresses, from the Source Server.

To finish the Migration Wizard

  1. On the Migration Wizard Home page, click Finish Migration, and then click Next.

  2. On the Finish the migration page, you can choose to finish any skipped tasks, finish the migration process, or skip the tasks and return to the Migration Wizard later.

    • If you want to finish the skipped tasks, click Do not finish the migration yet, and then click Next. To finish the skipped tasks, see the instructions for that task.

    • If you want to finish the migration process, click Finish the migration, and then click Next. Continue to step 3.

    • If you want to stop the Migration Wizard and return later to finish, click Skip this task, and then click Cancel. When you restart the wizard, it returns to this page, where you can choose to finish the skipped tasks or finish the migration process.

  3. On the Finish the migration page, follow the instructions in Demote and remove the Source Server from the network to remove the Source Server from the network.

    ImportantImportant
    This is required.

  4. Rerun the Connect to the Internet Wizard to reconfigure the DNS entries on the Destination Server network adapter. This removes any references to the Source Server in the DNS entries.

    1. In the navigation bar on the Windows SBS 2011 Standard Console, click the Network tab, and then click Connectivity.

    2. In the Tasks pane, click Connect to the Internet, and then follow the instructions in the wizard.

  5. Return to the Finish the migration page, click The source server is no longer a domain controller, click Next, and then click Finish.

noteNote
After finishing the migration, you might experience an issue the first time that you create a user account on the Destination Server. If this occurs, remove the user account that you added, and then create it again.
