Upgrade to System Center Configuration Manager Server 2007 R3 with SP2

Current Environment:
We have 1 (one) Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Primary Site (Database lives on another SQL - non-cluster)
Version: SCCM 2007 RTM


I would like to end up with a completely (just one server and one database)separate server and move the existing R2 database to our SQL cluster.

Should I upgrade to R2, R3 first?
then move the database to the cluster?
build new server in parallel?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Build the new server in and get it ready to connect to the SQL server -
Then copy the database - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680707.aspx 

Remember, the clients look for site server by Hostname - your new machine will need the same Hostname, so you'll have to take the old one down and connect the new one to the network/database.

Once it's working, then work on the R3 upgrade.

I would import the datbase from the current location rather than copyng it  Make sure the sccm service is down on the original box before performing the import

When you say import.

Currently I have the Database on: hostname: SQL3
I would like the database to live on a cluster and the SCCM server to live on a new VM (that I will build today.)
