Hi,

I'm preparing to migrate from a Windows 2003 SBS with Exchange 2003 and SQL Server 2000 to a Windows 2008 Standard machine with Exchange 2010 Standard.

I'd like to keep the 2003 SBS machine up running SQL 2000 for a few months after transitioning the DC to the Windows 2008 box and Exchange 2003 to 2010. Is this possible? Will SBS 2003 allow me to move over to the Windows 2008 as a Domain Controller? What's the procedure to do so?
