SBS 2003 to Windows Server 2008

The Plan.

Migrate from SBS 2003 to Server 2008 with a 2003 secondary domain controller (I know there's not supposed to be primary domains any more, but hey, while FSMO exists, the primary roles continues).

Hmmm tell me how are you going about doing that... I think SBS2003 is a bit more than I need, but I do need Exchange server.



Though on a side note, SBS2003's antivirus/antispam add-on are cheaper than getting Windows Server + Exchange Server package.

The plan is to migrate to Server 2008 in Feb, running the beta at the moment to assess migration strategies. Will probably move Exchange from SBS to the IIS server but not decided yet.

If you are considering SBS there a good package deals available, I believe ~1 500.
