New SBS2008 Install Questions

Current Servers below:
(1) Small Business Server 2003 Premium Ed.
(1) Windows Server 2003 Std Server R2 - for terminal service connections

Client outgrew Exchange 2003 Information Store limitations.
Convinced client to purchase new server hardware and SBS2008.

Since I dont trust the previous installation (worried about root kits and the like) I intend to install the new SBS server as a new install rather than an upgrade.

My question is how do I safely migrate the terminal services server to the new domain properly and with as little reconfiguration as needed?

Is it a safe practice to demote the terminal services server from the domain, and then join to new domain?

I've never worked with a temrinal services server so I'm a little worried about the process...

Hi There,

Ensure you have a TS Licensing Server, I am assuming this TS Server in the SBS03 environment is also the licensing server as well?

Also note the permissions/users who have access to this TS Box, should be setup through an OU in the AD

Demote the terminal server from the existing SBS03 environment, when you do this, make sure you know the Local Admin Username/Password (if you dont, reset it)
Once demoted, log back in as the Local Admin
Configure the NIC on the TS to meeting the the new SBS08 environment.
Connect to the SBS08 network
Join the SBS08 server to the domain as a MEMBER SERVER (right click Network, Properties, Change etc....)
Once it is a member of the SBS08 environment. you will need to setup the groups, Add the users/groups back into the picture and your done.

Once the TS Service is installed, it doesn't matter where the box sits behind.
It is only a service of the server, with no direct bounds.

Ensure if you have any specific GPO's on the SBS03 box you create them into the SBS08 GPO so you don't give users more than what they used to have.

Good luck
