My current problem is the following migration scenario:
Present infrastructure based on Windows Server 2003 ( I know is is very old ;-) All are virtualized VMs. Existing domain name : PXX.LOCAL 2 Domain-Controller : PXX-DC0 and PXX.DC1 2 Terminal-Servers : PXX-RDS1 , PXX-RDS2 1 Printer Server : PXX-PRT 1 File Server : PXX-FS This File Server has about 10 SHAREs (Named : ABC1 , ABC2 , ABC3 etc ) Al of these servers (and also the clients ) are on the same subnet 192.168.33.xx (255.255.255.0)
In the next months we need to start to build a completly new environment based on Windows Server 2016 ( at last ;-) All are virtualized VMs. We are doing this becasue we are changing our ERP system (very old and that is why we are stuck on the 2003 environmeent) with a completly new one. All of these Servers will be on a new subnet 192.168.52.xx/23 (VLAN based).
These 2 network can comunicate thru our gateway switch so that the PCs 192.168.33.xx could (in the future ) connect to the new servers.
These 2 domains need to be active togheter for some months (until we could shutdown the old one when we will be working with the new one system)
My questiones are:
With a new domanin named as : PYY.LOCAL - can I use the SAME Computer Name for the new servers as the old one? - can I use the same SHARE name for the new file server as the olds ?
My problem is that I need to bring in the new environmeent the same SERVER-NAME-OF-THE-FILE-SERVER and the same SHARE-NAMES so that I can migrate all the 800.000 files from the old file server to the new one without asking to all my employees to change something in their files ( like excel/word links inside their documents).
Many thanks for your help. Pierluigi
