Good aye!!! Everyone ! Im new to Experts Exchange infact this is my first post : )

Ok..I am currently running on Windows SBS 2003 on an old box. We just bought a new box with all the bells  
and whistles. I need to migrate all the Data, Users Accounts and Mail from  
the old box to the new one. I was planning on using ADMT. Does anyone have  
any ideas or tips on the best practices for such a migration?  
Also do I have to do buy CALs again?? or setup CALs on the new system?

Thanks in advance for your input

Are retaining the SBS system, same version etc?
If so then you should look at the SBS Migration technique: http://www.sbsmigration.com/ - as that will allow you to retain everything and minimise downtime.
