MDT 2012 to Migrate from Windows 2003 32 Bit to Windows 2012 R2 64 Bit RRS feed

  • Question


  • I have used MDT for so long however only for client OS upgrade - XP to Windows 7/8.

    We wish to use MDT to migrate from Windows 2003 32 Bit to Windows 2012 R2 64 Bit. All servers are virtual on HyperV or VMWare - plan is to use USMT hardlink Migration.

    Is this supported? Has anyone used this for server migration?

  • Thanks Keith for your reply.

    Even is USMT does not work, we are ok. SMIGdeploy will be helpful.

    Basically, want MDT to run some scripts on the Windows 2003 server, post which install Windows 2012 and join it to the existing domain with the same computer name.

    Then hydration kit to help with the installation of features etc. Also, we would like to take a complete backup to a WIM before migrating.

    I am sure this is workable.
