I'm planning to use the NW Server Consolidation and Migration Toolkit,
formely known as Migration Wizard.
I've never used this tool before, so I have many questions. I've read
several posts, article, websites that explains a lot about this tool. It
seem to work pretty well.

I'm planning to do a full backup of my source server first. It will take
about 5 or 6 hours to backup to a tape (LTO3)
I saw that SMCT will transfer files from one server to another. Is there
anyway to pass this step and go next?
I'd prefer to use a good old backup/restore tool (Arcserve) to perform
this action.

also, will DHCP and NDPS service migrate correctly? I have several
printers and I don't want to create them again!
