Windows 2008 – File Server Migration

At work, I’ve been gradually setting up a new machine to act as our main file server, print server, and domain controller. The old server is running Windows Server 2003; the new one will be running Windows Server 2008. I haven’t really done much Windows sysadmin work lately other than the usual day-to-day stuff, so I’m a bit rusty on AD forests, FSMOs, and stuff like that. I have a bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning to write up and post, but I haven’t had much time for that. I thought I’d mention one thing that I discovered today, though: the Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit. I just stumbled across this at random, but it seems to be exactly the tool I need to get my shares moved over from the old server to the new one!
