Step 2: Sequence

Now to make sure that my divorce from my Small Business Server is not a messy one …

I’ll remove my reliance on server services in the following order, leaving the ones most difficult extractions for last:

  1. E-mail
  2. Antivirus
  3. Reference library
  4. Archive files
  5. Working files
  6. DHCP / DNS / Active directory (these all work in concert and need to be changed simultaneously)

Once the SBS isn’t doing anything anymore, I can simply turn off the backup server. Putting the Kaseya server in the cloud is much more complicated, so I’m not even thinking about that part right now. I know I don’t need the SBS running in order to make the Kaseya server work.

Next step: Moving e-mail to the cloud.
