How to Determine the Number of Days Left for SBS 2011 Standard Migration

[Today’s post comes to us courtesy of Rod White from Commercial Technical Support]

In order to determine the number of days left to complete your migration, SBS 2011 Migration Wizard Home page now displays a warning at the bottom of the page. In previous versions of Small Business Server, administrators had no obvious way of determining the number of days left during the 21 day migration period. As long as you’re still within the migration process the information will be at the bottom of the "Migration Wizard Home" page. Once 21 days has been passed, the source server will begin its cycle of reboots until it is removed from the domain.

To open the Migration Wizard:

  1. Double-click the Windows SBS Console icon on the desktop.
  2. On the Home Tab > Getting Started Tasks > select the "Migrate to Windows SBS" wizard.
