In conversation with a few geeks it has occurred to me that there will be work to do on the PCs too, won't there?
Some programs run off the server, and some save to the server so surely somehow I would need to alter ALL the paths on the machines to a new server? Or would the fact that the share names and locations are the same be OK? Would this mean renaming my old server and giving the new server its original name? Is this just carp I am speaking? Would explain why one company want to flatten the machines though, presumably they would reimage them after installiing the new server so that all the paths etc will be correct?
