SBS 2008 Migration demo and interview


About This Video

Chris Almida is the program manager for SBS team, owns the migration feature, and also the customer adoption program.  One of the biggest advantages of migration is now you can do the migration during production hours without ever having the users notice! Chris talks about:

  • Supported migration paths
  • Tips from his experience on doing many migrations
  • Troubleshooting steps (if you even need them) for doing migrations
  • Steps to take for SBS migration

From [9:24] to [~17:20] Chris explains a walk through of the SBS migration wizard.  Some of the questions answered:

  • What security groups the migration user account needs to be a part of
  • The difference between the two different Microsoft update mechanisms in the wizard
  • The purpose of filling in the company information

For more information about migration, read the  SBS 2008 deployment guide.
