    Hello,

    I'm in the process of moving my old SBS2003 server to new hardware. I would
    do a swing migration but I only have a few workstations and the existing
    server is a mess and I'd like to start from scratch. My question is, will I
    have any issues if I use the same domain name and server name on my new
    server as I had on the old one with respect to client/profile and workstation
    migration?

    TIA

    No, because you the way you are planning this you disjoin the workstations
    from the old domain and then join them via ConnectComputer to the new
    domain. Just make sure the 2 boxes are not on the same subnet at the same
    time.
    What are you planning with regard to your emails? Pulling them into PST
    files and then uploading them afterwards?

    I will be perfoming a similar exercise shortly and have large Public Folders
    to move. Also the old mailbox names will not map to the new (e.g.
    to ). Any suggestions, please?

    So far I have the all the PST's pulled using exmerge. I only have 20 users
    and 20 workstations.

    Ths Swing process seems to be a good plan. My new SBS 2003 has the same
    domain name as the old box. If this process is transparent to the users and
    workstations, I think this is what I need to do.

    Does anyone have or know where I can download documentation for this Swing
    process?

    Thanks,

    Steve
