SBS 2003 Prem to SBS 2008 Prem Failes

Post by TWlrZSB » Thu, 15 Jan 2009 16:20:01


Hello I have been doing an SBS2003 premium to SBS2008premium migration. I had
tried this successfully in a virtual test enviornment first but have run into
an issue on the production equipment.

I have run the Prep tool and migration file tool on the SBS 2003 server. I
put the answer file into the SBS 2008 server but it canned during the AD
replication. I had to can the migration and reinstall the 2008 server. The
SBS 2003 server now thinks the 2008 Server is the Operation master and won't
let the rebuilt server join and migrate the domain.

The SBS 2008 cannot join and migrate from the 2003 server with the log entry
"You cannot install an additional domain controller at this time because the
RID master (new server) is offline

The 2003 server Shows the operations master as the new 2008 server.

Is there a proceedure to back out of this issue and resume the migration?

Many thanks

Mike v
