Take a look at the following links for some guidelines.
SBS 2003 to Server 2008/Exchange 2007 http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...-65720c1019f5/
Upgrading Small Business Server 2003 to Exchange 2007 http://www.itexpertmag.com/server/up...-exchange-2007
Keep in mind, basically what the second article is indicating, is a method
to preserve your current user base with the same domain name. The 2008 DC
would need a new name, of course.
In a nutshell, you would install the new 2008 servers (one for the DC, and
one for Exchange 2007), then join it to the SBS domain. Of course it
involves upgrading the SBS domain schema. Then promote the 2008 into the SBS
domain, and make it a GC. Don't do anything with the FSMO roles just yet.
This will preserve your user accounts. Then install Exchange 2007 on the
other server, which will add it to the Exchange 2003 org on SBS. From here
you can use Exchange 2007's move mailbox tool to move the mailboxes over.
Then you have to replicate all public folders and hidden system folders over
to the new server. Once replication is complete, remove the Exchange 2003
replica. Once done, you can decommission Exchange 2003. As for the SBS DC,
you would need to unplug it, and seize the FSMO roles over to the new DC. Of
course, before all of that, make sure you move all user profile data,
company data, etc, to the new server.
That's in a nutshell. Read the whole article for more detail.
