Hi I have done many sbs 2008 installs now and I found in most cases its easier to do a new install rarther than a swing migration as the couple of swing migrations i have done have come up with issues later. This paticular install im about to do is a bit more compliated as they have a very conjested Active directory and exchange with 100's of distrabution groups etc. They currently have sbs 2000 and im putting in sbs2008. There is genrally no direct migration patch to 2008 although there is Microsoft Article of how to upgrade fromm 200 to 2008. In this Article it mentions you have to manually export and import mailboxes and public folders in the form of PST's which still seems like alot of work and alot of issues that may occur. I
Does anyone know of a method to do a swing migration but also copy over the information store and all its structure to the new esxchange 2007 on sbs2008. I know its moving from 32bit to 64bit version but I would of thought there would be some sort of tool out there to make it easier to upgrade SBS servers. Any help and advice will be much apreciated as this current install im about to do dont want any down time and Im trying to tread very carefully and cover every angle.
