Is there an easy way to migrate the Hub to a new server. My current one is running out of space. Do I need to redesign the configuration or can I do a migration to the new server.

Perhaps I'm missing some detail in your question. But can't you just do something like this:

  • Bring up a new node that replicates with the current hub
  • Wait for initial replication to complete
  • Change topology config so the new node is the hub
  • Remove the old hub from the topology

You want the Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit... it is free and was designed to migrate/consolodate DFS shares without impacting your end users:
