Migration from SBS 2000 Prem to SBS 2003 Stand

We need to migrate a SBS 2000 Premium Edition to a SBS 2003 Standard Edition. The important aspects are migrating the Exchange mailboxes, AD users and computers and group policy. (We do not use SharePoint).

Is there an easy way to do this? Or any products available that could help us with this?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is a full document about migration from Microsoft:

Migrating from Small Business Server 2000 or Windows 2000 Server to Windows Small Business Server 2003.

Hi digitalparts,

If you want the "easy way" to do the migration, take a look at http://sbsmigration.com.  Their "Swing" method allows you to accomplish the migration with NO downtime, and the ability to use the same domain, retention of Outlook rules, and the ability to work at your own pace.

I am a bit curious about your description of SBS2000 as "Premium" version, since there was no Premium Version of that product.
