    Missing SBS 2008 INFO.XML file

    My migration from SBS2003 to SBS2008 has been a struggle. I created the SBSANSWER.XML file on the Source server and put it on removable media, but the Destination server didn't convert that into an INFO.XML file during the migration. Unfortunately I'm too far into the migration to back out and try it again.

    I've been able to copy the SBSANSWER.XML file to the INFO.XML file, but the Migration Wizard is failing on the Destination server. I suspect there's more to the INFO.XML file than what's int eh SBSANSWER.XML.

    Does anyone have an INFO.XML file they can share so I can see what it's supposed to look like?

    Thanks!

    Whoops... meant to say sbsanswerfile.xml, not SBSANSWER.XML.

    When the server can't read the answer file in migration mode it doesn't
    start the server in migration mode. That means you shouldn't be far
    along at all to stop and start over again.

    Why do you think you are too far into the migration? Where are you at?
