Over the years, Microsoft has released hundreds of tools to make working with Windows simpler and more efficient. When it comes to Migrating from an older version of Windows to a brand new version, these tools are invaluable for assessing the current environment and laying the groundwork for getting things up to date. A smooth transition is particularly important for our Windows Servers which run critical infrastructure components and business applications.
In Part 8 of our 19 part series for February, Matt Hester summarizes a collection of migration tools to make the move to Windows Server 2012 smooth and easy. The Server Migration Tools are a part of the Windows Server 2012 Media and matt will show you how to get them installed and registered for use. Look for more information on how to use the tools in an upgrade or a migration later in the series.
