I have an environment with SBS 2003 and 3 other server (not DCs). I just got a new server and will install SBS 2008. I want to find the best way to make this "migration". Here is the key, I would really like to start from scratch so I can rename the new SBS server but I don't want to make this too complicated. I have installed an SBS box in an existing domain and am familiar with that process including moving the FSMO roles. My only idea for this is to:

Install the new server but stop SBS part of install. Then make it a DC
Uninstall the SBS part of the other server.
Move FSMO roles
Finish install of SBS on new server.
Demote original DC and remove from network
Re-run http://newservername/connectcomputer at all my workstations.

Am I even remotely close on how to do this? Oh yea, somewhere in there I need to restore my exchange DB files  and configure DHCP too. Is there a whitepaper or anyone have a list of instructions on this????

Thanks in advance,

Jerry
