Migrate from SBS 2003 Standard to SBS 2011 standard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am upgrading a SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, both standard version.

    I have run the upgrades, raised the domain and forest levels, updated the scheme etc using the SBS migration tool. However and the scan stage I had three errors, all but one are now cleared.

    I have read the article from Microsoft "Access Control list (ACL) inheritance is blocked. Which I meant I went to each object and checked each user had the option "allow inheritance from the parent to propagate...". I cannot see any objects in the exchange system manager under security that has this option missing.

    I am stuck now with a old SBS server with changes made to it and not sure how to proceed. Also afraid that the SBS 2003 box is now going to not work for the users after the changes made by the migration tool.

    Does anyone have any advice please?

    Thanks

  • Ok I have resolved it, so for the people out there who could not find the object with ACL inheritance switched off. I found a MS tool, which identified the object:

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=22485

    This scans and actually gives you the object that has no ACL inheritance and will avoid have to look around every where for the tick box.

    Might save someone a lot of time.

    Thanks

  • First of all migration tool does not make any such changes to source server so that users cannot use it.

    Secondly which article you read from microsoft? was it

  • Sourcetool.log should be present under %temp% folder which should provide information for the errors.

    You have followed the complete article as suggested earlier and you get error for ACL in sourcetool or is it from BPA?

    Is it better to go for a manual process of building a new server from scratch ?--- Well in short it all depends upon many factors such as number of users , data , sharepoint data , folder redirection , customize group policies, exchange mailboxes  ...... a long list. You will have to provide more information on this before me or other's can suggest
