After requests to release a version of File Server Migration Toolkit (FSMT) compatible with Windows Server 2008, the Storage Solutions Division at Microsoft brings you FSMT 1.1 Beta!
File Server Migration Toolkit v 1.1
adds the possibility to migrate and consolidate data to file servers running Windows Server 2008. With that, FSMT aims to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase the efficiency of storage management and backup tasks. It covers two main features:
File Server Migration Wizard which copy shared folders, files, and their security settings from a source file server to a target file server.
DFS consolidation root wizard which maintain the original Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of files after they are migrated to a new server.
We are running a short beta for the tool. If you’d like to have first hand access to FSMT 1.1, follow the instructions below
