File Server Migration (Same Domain)

In this video we showcase how easy it is to migrate files, folders, NTFS permissions, file shares, share level permissions and local groups including members from one Windows® 2008 R2 to another Windows® 2012 R2 member file server in the same domain.
Both servers are member servers in the same domain. The software is installed and run on the source system. The source is running Windows 2008 R2 and the target Windows 2012 R2. If newer Windows versions were used, or if running it on the target, the same settings could be used.

The settings used assume that no users are working while the migration takes place. If you want to use an approach with multiple passes (pre-copy/final copy) you additionally have to enable either the "Use Volume Shadow Copy" ("Source and Destination" page) or the "Ignore errors resulting from locked files" ("Error Processing" page) option for the pre-copy pass(es) to prevent errors from occuring because of locked files.
