Help migrating from 2k "standard" domain to SBS2003 R2

Folks

I have to migrate an old standard 2000 domain into a 2003 R2 SBS domain and I was wondering what was the proper way to achieve this without too much pain and user service disruption.

In other words I have currently 3 W2K servers (AS, File & Exchange) that will end up consolidated into the single SBS setup. I have spent some time googling this but to my amazement I have not (yet) found a clear procedure for this sort of migration.

As such any help / pointer would be much appreciated.

Thanks & regards

Thanks for the pointer - will review it ASAP. At first glance I might have some problems with the R2 AD schema extensions that are not covered in this KB (but I have to fully research this)...

This KB article still applies, you only have to ensure that you Extend the AD schema a second time by using the R2 CD.
