Hi @RavindraPawar-8899,

You can migrate your file server by using the Storage Migration Service, you can follow along here:

Use Storage Migration Service to migrate a server
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/migrate-data

Migrating roles and features in Windows Server
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started/migrate-roles-and-features

Note: Windows Server 2019 "R2" does not exist, it's simply "Windows Server 2019".


(If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you)


Best regards,
Leon

When using Storage Migration Service it will take the source server's IP-address and hostname (pptional) and move it to the new "destination" server, along with all the files, permissions and shares that you have selected during the migration steps.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

Storage Migration Service is a tool made just for this, so I would definitely recommend using it instead of manually migrating anything.
