    This should be plugged into a UPS to prevent issues. Most decent UPS manufacturers offer a software component you can install on the system so that it can gracefully shut down the system before the battery backup in the UPS completely discharges. I've installed plenty of these on servers and critical desktop systems and other than something catastrophic they've prevented a lot of bigger issues.

    I'll advise them to purchase a UPS.

    Just to follow up on this problem...I ordered the PCI card that you recommended (Thank You) and I found a USB Ethernet adaptor that I bought a while back for a laptop I owned. I plugged it in the Dell Sever that I bought from XBYTE and it worked perfectly and I'm running Server 2019. I'm gonna try it Monday..unit the PCI card arrives.


    I want to thank you for all your help. This has me stressed out.

    Relax, take a deep breath and proof read.`I believe that should be until not unit.

    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    I was able to get everyone back connected to the server by using a USB Ethernet Adapter. I also showed the owner documentation that whomever built the server used a motherboard that only supports Windows 10 and not Server 2016.

    They want me to give them a quote on a new server.


    On a side note: When I showed up this morning the onboard NIC was showing up (don't know how the hell that happened) but again it had the yellow triangle beside the network adapter icon and would not connect to the internet. I'm thinking a windows update may have caused issues because this was the original problem before I ever touched the server.

    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    My guess would be that the onboard NIC isn't making complete contact with the systemboard so it's sort of floating back and forth between knowing something is there and not seeing the hardware at all. Probably a bad solder joint or just the overall hardware dying out from being pushed 24/7 for who knows how long.

    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    I need to know the best/easiest way to migrate shared folders from one server to another - 2016 to 2019. These are enumerated folders. I'm researching it but any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    According to post on Spiceworks "Migrating DHCP is pretty painless if you're already on Server 2016. He recommends using the Powershell commands."
    As for files "He recommends migrating file shares using Robocopy. You can run incremental syncs and copy all of the security and attributes with it."

    You can also use an online backup service such as iDrive, OneBackup or Carbonite. I have had customers Carbonite subscriptions replace existing filed computers with new run newer OS. The restore was able to detect the new OS and restore everything without touching the new OS.

    Thanks, slim. Robycopy is the best FREE alternative that I've found thus far. It's an interesting process but every command line must be precise. Luckily I don't have that many files to transfer.


    The learning process continues....

    PS - Moving the folders doesn't seem that complicated but the "share permissions" don't move with the folders using RobyCopy. That involves a few more steps.

    PSS - The video below explains step-by-step how to use RobyCopy. It's a little involved.

    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    Server 2019 offers a feature called Storage Migration Service. It will transfer all SMB data as well as permissions and even rename the target server to the old system's name.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...rvice/overview

    There's also DFS (distributed File System) which allows multiple servers to hold the same share data, and can be used in a pinch to sync data to a new server.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...-dfs-functions

    Lastly, if the data is on a drive other than C: then the OS could be wiped and reloaded with the data drives untouched and then re-shared though if anything other than domain accounts are used, all permissions will need to be rebuilt.
