Installing a new PC running Server 2003 SBS on network already running SBS 2003.  Need to migrate all domain info to new PC.  Can't get both on the domain together but have them on the same network for a couple of days. How do I migrate one SBS to another?  No Exchange running...simple domain controller file server. Thanks

This should tell you everything you need to know:

The first link on that page actually details the process.  The other links go to worksheets which may be of assistance during the migration.

sundeak,

There are 5 different migration options:

Since you say there is no Exchange running, then I would ask why you are even bothering migrating?  How many users and computers are there?  
If only a few... use option 2.

Thanks guys!  Just started using Experts Exchange. All three of you answered right away and each solution is a way to go.  Hope the point split isn't too much of a cop out. Just learning my way around this EE.
