Migrating Server Using Windows Migration Tool

Hi Guys,

In this post we will going to migrate windows server 2003 (32bit) to windows server 2012.For this we are using FileSer-01(Source) file server which will to migrated on server WSUS-01(Destination) with the help of Windows Migration Tool.
So lets get started.

Install Windows Server Migration Tools Feature on source machine.

  1. Connect with server WSUS-01 and Install Windows Server Migration Tools Feature.
  2. Go to Server Manager >> Add roles and features 
  3. Click Install
  4. Once it get finished, click close
      
OR      We can use powershell command


{code}Install-WindowsFeature Migration -ComputerName <Hostname>{code}

Here we have done with installation of Windows Migration Tools.

  • On WSUS-01 open powershell
  • Execute this command {code} .\SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture x86 /os WS03 /path C:\MIG {code} 

Based on the source server you want to prep for you would issue the following command:
 Windows Server 2012
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS12 /path <deployment folder path>
Windows Server 2008 R2
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS08R2 /path <deployment folder path>
Windows Server 2008
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS08 /path <deployment folder path>
Windows Server 2008 32bit
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture X86 /os WS08 /path <deployment folder path>
Windows Server 2003 64bit
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture amd64 /os WS03 /path <deployment folder path>
Windows Server 2003 32bit
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture X86 /os WS03 /path <deployment folder path>
We are using 32 bit Windows 2003 source server.
  • Now Copy MIG folder to source machine i.e Fileser01,you can see all these folders               
  • Before executing SmigDeploy.exe we need to check the prerequesites for Windows Server Migration Tools

  • Now execute SmigDeploy.exe in Command prompt.
  • It will open one powershell session, Type Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.Migration

  • Now go on destination server i.e. WSUS-01 and open Server Manger >> Tools >> Windows Server Migration Tools >> Windows Server Migration Tools
     
Here we have Successfully enabled Server Migration Tools, please refer Technet Site for more info.
