We have a test server that is old and is not enough to put into production. Also, something happened to the Shared Services in our Administrative Services and does not allow certain things that requires Shared Services like adding search scopes. Would it be possible to migrate the test server to a newer machine even though it does not have Shared Services, or would we basically need to start over from "scratch"?
If we would need to start from scratch, would there be a way to maintain any of the metadata that is currently stored? We have revision numbers on many documents that would be a pain and take a long time to reenter into the new one.
