I am in the middle of migrating Microsoft Server 2003 standard to Microsoft SBS 2008. The migration tool for 2008 will not work on 2003 server. I am trying to complete the migration but I am stuck as there are several things that appear to not function:

I have gotten the new server into AD and has taken all the FSMO roles over from the existing server.

It seems to have issues with Netlogon when i try to demote the original PDC. I looked through the MS tech article to migrate SBS 2003 to 2008 and it appears there has to be some sort of changes to groups and users within SBS 2008.

All data has been copied to the new server, but I cannot access the shares from machines that have what appears are appropriate permissions. ( I get  permissions errors).

Has anyone migrated from 2003 to SBS 2008?

I did find a 3 part article on this online but it is not indepth enough to explain what has to happen.

Unfortunately, it doesnt apply. This server isnt running Exchange.

I attempted to DCPROMO the 2003 server however it fails due to Netlogon issues.

If you are migrating to SBS and want to keep the same domain as the 2003 std server, you will have to use a migration install.
Just ignore the exchange part of the guide, which comes later.
