Question : Reinstalling SBS 2008 from scratch


The SBS 2008 server we have is running in an extreme unstable state since one of the drives failed.

I was able to make a full backup of Exchange IS with Acronis, tested the data on a test machine, and the data is fine. I already moved public folders to another machine already.

Now, I'm ready to wipe it out and reinstall the whole system.

Obviously I would like to do it with minimum work on the client PCs.

I'm currently filling up the answer file, and it's asking if it's a new installation or migration.

If I do migration, would that work? or will I have to remove every single client PC off the domain and join it back again. Can I keep the same domain name, or is it better to use a new one?

Thanks in advance.

I'd also appreciate if you have any comments.

Yes if you are reformatting you will need to rejoin the computers, recreate the users and setup all the permissions again.
