I’ve done a SBS2003 > SBS2008 before so I have some (little!) experience of the process.
I have a couple of questions:
1) The migration document states that the router / gateway should be on .1 or .254. Why is this – is there something hard-coded in the migration code that looks for the gateway on either of these addresses?
2) I’m doing a migration from 2003 >2011 shortly – the target / destination server is a HP server. usually the process is to build a HP server with SmartStart and then give it the OS CD / DVD when required. As the migration process requires the answer file to be present when booting the 2011 DVD, is it possible to do this, or do I just install the support pack post-install?
