Can someone help me please? I need to move 18 SharePoint servers (mainly 2007) and about 50 databases from one datacenter to another. It is like for like from VM to VM. I know this should be relatively simple but I don’t know what to do or even where to start. Can anyone give me any guidelines of things I need to do? Questions I should answer before I start…etc

Thanks in advance!
