    migrating sbs 2003 to server 2008 method

    Hi All,

    first post here but after many pain taking hours of reading on the internet
    thought i would see if anyone has experienced this or completed succesfully!!!

    i am going to be installing a new server 2008 box for a client.

    the SERVER 2008 box will be running
    AD
    Exchange2010
    dhcp & dns
    sql db's

    thier current box is

    SBS 2003
    exchange 2003
    AD etc

    i have read the sbs 2003 to sbs 2008 migration manual and obviously some of
    the steps in that arent relevant to the none sbs box, so what is the best way
    to do this?

    thanks for your time guys

    Why are you building the equivalent of a SBS box without the benefit of
    an SBS box?

    I'm honestly wanting to know.

    The best way is to ping www.sbsmigration.com and get his swing kit. But
    first I'd like to know why you are building a SBS box for this client
    with all the cost, none of the benefits?
