Hi,

I just migrated our domain controller from 2003 to 2008.
It's time now to migrate our file server running on 2003 R2 to 2008 std R2.
I have 2 questions:

1. on new file server, should I activate "file services" role, and if yes,
what will be the difference with simple file sharing we do on 2003 server?
2. To copy 2 Tb of data, do you still recommend to use robocopy or is there
some new tool capable of copying file permissions etc. ?

Many thanks for your advice.

Mike

Hello Mike,

This should give you a starting point for file server migration:
