Simple best practices migration question

  Asked By: Charmaine    Date: Jul 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 994

Here's a question that should be simple but after a lot of searching
the answer still eludes me.

This is a small environment, using a single server to host latest
versions of SharePoint Portal and a few SharePoint services sites
using SQL 2000. There is no customizations done as yet but we have a
few thousand documents in the library. No security or access rules
have been applied to the documents as yet.

We now have a new server to host the same Sharepoint environment as
described above and want to transfer all of the documents from one to
the other server. The old server will be retired.

Given the simplicity of our requirement, what would our best method
to transfer the documents. Should we just use the Windows Explorer
or would we use SMIGRATE or ???

In the premium content area of the mindsharp site there is a whitepaper and webcast I believe to move a farm to new server  hardware.

It's very well done... I would start looking there...

This way you can move your whole entire environment  over rather than re-install a separate environment, configure it like the old, and then manually move the documents.

much easier just to back-up your entire farm and other files and then restore it all to the new farm.

I guess it depends on your preference though..
