I’ve searched high and low and have been unable to find any information on how to accomplish what seems to be a common task. I have a Windows 2003 server domain with 2 domain controllers (both GC’s). I need to upgrade the server hardware to a brand new box on my main DC that runs DNS, DFS, FSMO roles, and other critical services/applications. I am on Service pack 1 on the server. I have numerous shares on the server that must be transferred along with permissions. I have explored the ASR method, but from my research I understand that this is not intended to be used on hardware that is not simlar from the original ASR backup hardware. I would appreciate any input on the best method of moving to new hardware.
