Do we have to transfer all FSMO roles on Windows 2008 during the upgrade from Exchange 2003 SBS to 2010?

Is there any reason?

Can we just mount a new Dc with Widnows 2008?

Ya I don't plan to remove SBS but just add a Windows 2008 DC and install Exchange 2010 on another Windows 2008 server.

Cool hey guys thanks for all those info!

So as said I will plan to mount 2 new Windows 2008 servers and leave SBS with FSMO roles.

- One for DC and GC role
- One for Exchange

Is that correct like that?
