Moving SIMS Server to new machine
As part of a proposed network redesign at a school I look after, we want to move the SIMS installation do a dedicated server. At present, everything at the school runs from one single server and we want to get SIMS moved off for reasons of security and availability.
I've spoken to capita who have quoted £550 to do the work for us, but Im wondering what would be involved in doing this myself?
The company i work for does outsourced IT for businesses and schools so I am no amateur at SQL Server and Windows Server 2003 etc.
Has anyone undertaken anything like this themselves and if so how straightforward was it?
One last thing, the current server runs Server 2003 64bit and SQL 2008 64 bit aswell. The new server will more than likely be running the 32 bit server and 32 bit SQL, will this make the process any more difficult?
