I'm in the process of Migrating a Server 2003 installation to a completely new server with different hardware. I want the process to go smooth but am not sure where to start. So a few questions.
Is it possible to make an image of the existing server installation and then clone this image to the new server?
Does Microsoft provide any tools to help with this process.
And...can I use the same product key to activate the new installation once I install on the new server and do away with the old one?
Thank You. I know this question has been asked many times before but the answers seemed to be spotty at best and did not explain any of the caveats to the various methods of migration
