Help on migrating Windows server 2008R2 to a dedicated server RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi guys,

    I need help on migrating my server operating system. On my current hosting I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 (Standard edition) machine. It's not on a dedicated server, it's a virtual machine under VMware architecture (vSphere5). Now I want to migrate to another hosting and I want to move to a dedicated server, with the same operating system version.

    Can I use software like Windows Backup (or something similar, for example R1Soft) to restore the same image I have on the current server, so with the smaller stress on my side?

    As an alternative I would like to know if it's possible to export things of the current configurations like:

    • Group and users (maintening the same password)
    • ACL
    • All the IIS configuration (general configuration, sites, application pools etc)

    Thanks in advance
