Re: Upgrading server hardware

Windows 2000 and NT 4.0 both are not very forgiving when it comes to network
hardware changes.  We had a gigabit card go bad on our PDC.  When we removed
the card from the network configuration, and installed a replacement, NT 4.0
BSOD'd on startup until we put the bad card back in.  We then had to
manually edit the registry to remove several keys, re-install networking,
and then install the new card.  There are seveal TechNet articles which
discuss this problem.

Best of luck.

Right backing up via the Windows 2000 backup didn't work either, next on the
list is Symantec Ghost

Ah, I misunderstood..  I thought you were talking about a full backup.
The ISA backup/restore functionality is limited to _that installation_ only.
If you reinstall, even if you use the same name, you can't restore to it.
It's a security decision; wouldn't want an enemy duplicating your setup to
identify your weak spots...

Thanks Jim

What if the hardware is physically different ?

I did try a restore, but was getting an error, I'm now resorting to backing
up the whole system and then restoring it to the new system, is this the
easiest and best way ?

Watch out for drivers, particularly the networking ones.
If you use different NICs without deleting the old ones, W2K keeps them in
the registry and you'll get "IP already used" errors.

I've currently got an installation of ISA Standard edition, working with no
problems at all, also VPN'ing ok as well on it.

I wish to upgrade the hardware, i know in order to restore the existing
installation the computer name needs to be the same, is there anything else
i have to look out for ?

Thanks in advance
