Migrate to SBS 2008 Standard
Posted on 2009-07-09
This may sound like an odd line of questioning, and you can feel free to tell me I'm off my rocker with it :)
I have a client that has a Windows 2003 Standard server (DC) which is also running Exchange 2003 on a single box. We are going to upgrade them (well me anyway) to SBS2008 Standard on a NEW server...now the fun part: It appears that the migration path is a bust to go directly from one to the other, so here is my simple mind over thinking it;
In place upgrade the existing server to SBS2003? (can this be done, I have not found and docs for Win2k3 to SBS2k3)
Then follow the migrate SBS 2003 to sbs2008 support docs (which I do know work, as I have made this move many times) and end up with all the users, shares, and mail stores from the server1 on server2 with the new SBS2008.
Is it going to work?
Thanks in advance
