We have about 15 Windows 2003 and 2008 servers at our data center, which host hundreds of different sites and databases. We have to move them to a new rack from 5th floor to 3rd floor. This move possibly involves switching off power and/or network for a while.
I want to keep the servers on while we do the move. Can anyone suggest how to do this? Please dont hesitate to also give other important tips and tricks which can help automate as many things as possible.
