2003 to 2016 Server Migration
Posted: 2019-08-10 14:12
I will try to present my scenario. I have a Windows 2008 FTP Server and the home directory points to a Network Share. One of the folders on that share resides on a Windows 2003 Server, and I need to migrate that server to Windows 2016. Here's the situation...I have a new 2016 server built and I have attached the D: Drive of the original 2003 Server to the new 2016 Server. The exact same shares and permissions exist on the new server. When I use Filezilla to upload a file when that drive is mounted on the 2016 server, I am able to browse, but I am get Error 550 when trying to upload the file. When I take the 2016 server down and bring the 2003 up, FTP works just fine--I can transfer files. I have confirmed that the FTP account I am using (which is also an Active Directory Account) is able to log into and map to the drive when it is mounted on the 2016 server and copy files. In fact, I have made that account an administrator on the 2016 server and confirmed that the account has full rights to the share that I need to FTP files to. The new server has the same name and IP address as the server it is replacing. Do you have any suggestions or ideas as to what may be preventing file transfers from occurring when the drive resides on the 2016 server? Thanks for your help.
