Migrate SBS2003 to Server 2008 (no exchange)

I have to swap an old SBS2003 server box for a new Server 2008 (std) sever box - due to running out of disk space, speed, etc.

The current server does not use exchange and only acts as a file and application server + runs SQL standard for a main application.

There are about 20 client PCs connected to the current domain.

I'm wondering what the best/easiest migration method is..

Many thanks

My mistake, there is no reason, because you will use the same domain. Sorry, once again :/ You have to only prepare schema and domai for 2008 dc, transfer fsmo roles and that's all. Then reconigure your dns and dhcp settings and you will be able to demote sbs2003

Many thanks, I've had a quick look through this and it looks good. I will let you know how I get on.

Do I need the Sharepoint stuff you mention as a requirement (as I don't use any of this)?

Also: Any tips on moving the SQL server install + database across?

Many thanks
