NEWSFLASH: Elvis spotted near the Gulf Coast of Florida
Well the headline got your attention didn't it?
Okay so it's not Elvis ...
but rather Jeff Middleton's SwingMigration Tour that is on the road again.
You near the Gulf Coast June 23 ?
Jeff Middleton SBS-MVP is presenting on Swing Migration to the Gulf Coast
SMB Partners Group. It's a new group in the area, and they are looking to
invite anyone interested to join with the group. Come support a local
community and meet some folks from the worldwide community!
Jeff will be providing a presentation on how to migrate SBS or Windows
domains with the extremely popular approach of Swing Migration:
o This unique technical solution can redefine your SMB business and
server support model, even put an end to the "business shutdown" or "the
long-weekend server upgrade" approach to Windows Server and SBS upgrades.
o Directly shifting any Windows domain from NT4/SBS 4.x through
Win200x over to SBS/Windows 200x become possible, even BackOffice 2000 to
SBS 2003 while maintaining the original Active Directory. Swing Migration
delivers a clean installed Windows OS platform, (with or without hardware
replacement), retains the same server-name, same domain. Keep the same
Exchange Information Store if you like.
o No user profile impact, ADMT is not required, no SID changes, no
UNC namespace break, just a transparent server upgrade that includes the
confidence of not impacting the workstations. This documented process keeps
a customer's domain in production, allows a full server replacement for
complicated Exchange based organizations on a single domain controller such
as SBS operating as a file server as well. Your technician can work offsite,
offline, open-timeline and with nothing to undo if unexpected issues arise.
In addition, Jeff is providing as a door prize a donated item worth $2500.
That ought to keep folks guessing!
