I currently have a server that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Small Business that is running Exchange.  We have had some hardware issues with this server and have purchased a new Windows Server 2003 for Small Business server.  I need to move our Exchange settings and database over to the new server. What is the best procedure for doing this?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Rancy quit.
The issue here is two SBS 2003 servers cannot be in the same domain, so you cant do that.

I have used and live by SBS Swing Migration, microsofts solutions never give you everything, you find something that it did not transfer 3 months down the line.
