    2008 Migration - Redirection Service

    Hi there,
    Just about to start Migrating my SIMS DB and I have a question. Do I need to use the Redirection Service. I'm loath to have things running I don't need.

    All my local Connict.ini's point to a server one (which I can easilly edit). What else do I need it for? Or should I turn it on to be on the safe side?

    We had turned it off and no problems for the last month or two.

    Is the Document Server path re-mapped regardless then?

    Many more times than not. But it's simple enough to edit if not.

    I prefer to turn it off and uninstall SQL 2005 then if you have any users who get a problem you'll know about it straight away.

    That said it does seem to work well enough.

    Wimped out and left it on.
    On the upside my SQL Migration all looks OK so "Yeah". Leave SQL 2005 on until October half term then shut it down.
