Hello All,

I have to do a migrate tonight at a client's location. They have 2 domain controllers running Windows 2000 Server.

DC Server Services

1. Domain Controller
4. SQL Server
5. Jive Messenging Server
6. Veritas backup server

Mail Server Services

1. Domain Controller
2. Exchange Server 2000
3. VPN Services

I have setup 2 New Windows Server 2003 SBS Boxes, ECPDC and ECPMAIL. The ECPDC is going to replace the DC server and the ECPMAIL will replace the MAIL server.

So far on the ECPDC I have done all updates, promoted it as a Domain Controller, and Seized the FSMO roles. On the ECPMAIL, I have done all the updates and install exchange 2003 software

I need somebody to give me steps, advice, and tips on how to complete the migration. I have the document from microsoft on how to do these but i need more of a step by step thing. It doesn't have to go into details.
