We have a small accounting client (17 users) who is running Small Business Server 2000 on a 7 year old server. We are in the process of planning a migration to a new server and SBS 2003. The customer only wants to migrate AD and Exchange to the new server at this point. They would like to keep their database files (QuickBooks, Peachtree, etc) on the old server after the migration as well as their existing folders and shares until after tax season.
My question is - can this be done without reformatting the old server and restoring the data? The server is somewhat fragile and we really want to do this without having to take the chance of disrupting more than we have to at this time.
