Can I move WHS 2011 to a new server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just built a new server and want to setup WHS 2011 on it.  I can easily move all the folder content, however is there a way to move the computer profiles, user profiles, and especially the backups associated with each computer to the new location?

    I have been poking around the "Client Computer Backups" folder however guessing just moving the content to the same place on the new server isn't going to cut it.  Thoughts?

  • Taking a complete backup of your existing server, followed by a bare metal restore to the new one, would be the recommended approach. The bare metal restore isn't well-documented, however, and you may find that you will need to use the recovery console to "repair" your installation afterward if there are hardware differences.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
