Move Root Certificate Authority from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008

Move Root Certificate Authority from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008

Just recently I moved our Root Certificate Authority from what was originally an Small Business Server 2003. A while back I did run the Transition Pack, to upgrade it from an SBS server to a full Windows Server, but we had left it running Active Directory and it was still our Certificate Authority.

We decided that it was time to finally shut down this old server, but before we could, we had to move these essential services to another server. Searching around for what others had done I stumbled across this blog and it became the foundation of my technical solution.

At the end of the day, the migration went through successfully and I have the link below to thank for it!
