Redefining the OS

Tired from the flight back. Much stress. No time to tell long stories and no concentration to type them. BigHugeTelco made sure I wouldn't have to.

x-posted to da brog.

And I quote, verbatim:
We are in a process of building a new development server. Our existing Development Server is operating on Windows NT . The new development server will be built on Microsoft Office 2000. Can you please let us know the procedure or the steps to be followed to migrate a server from one machine to another running on different operating system . A detail document will be benefical as we dont have much idea on this.

You go right ahead and install $OurBigApp on Office 2000, Sparky. Make sure the DNS server is on Excel and remember that FrontPage isn't supported as a document server platform.

He probably meant Windows 2000 in which case migrating from NT is already documented... extensively.

Root Cause: 17-Fuckwit.

NT 4SP6a to Win2000 SP4. I mean, after all, some companies are even further behind than that -- #SHUDDER#.

I recently built and imaged a Win98 (non-SE) system for formatting a particular memory card some of our products use.

I feel your pain.
