Migrating MDT 2013 on 2012 R2 to MDT 8456 on Windows Server 2019 – Part 3


In Part 2 we covered setting up the environment ready so can look at creating the migration tasks

Creating a Migration Job

  • On the Windows 10 WAC select Server DF7-MDT01
  • Select Storage Migration Service > New Job
  • Create a Job Name > OK
  • Add Domain Credentials
  • The next step is to add your legacy MDT Server to scan for shares
  • You have the option to also scan for administrative shares. For this lab this was not required
  • In the screenshot below all shares that have been configured for MDT and WDS have been found:

NOTE: You will not need the WDS share (REMINST, E:\RemoteInstall). This will be configured again on DF7-MDT01 (Server 2019)

  • Click Next
  • Add the Domain Credentials for the destination device
  • Specify the destination server to transfer the files to (DF7-MDT01)
  • Click Next
  • In the next screen select only the shares you want to migrate.
  • Deselect the WDS Share (E:\RemoteInstall)
  • Click Next
  • Remove the option to backup any existing files on the destination server first
  • Click Next
  • Select Reuse accounts with the same name
  • Click Next
  • Click Validate to ensure the the source and destination computers are a legitimate configuration
  • Click Next
  • Start the transfer
  • Below shows the transfer of the shares completed with errors

In Part 4 we’ll take a break from the migration and focus on the errors. This took me a lengthy period to work through and resolve some of the problems encountered
