Installing an SBS2008 server into a Server 2003 environment

Hi Guys,

We have 2 old Server 2003 servers, one with data and print and the other with Exchange on and we have recently purchased a new SBS2008 box with Exchange 2010 built in.
We are planning to join this new box to the environment and move the services etc (mail, data, SQL etc) bit by bit and so are basically looking just to get this up and running in the domain without anything apart from maybe DNS, FSMO and AD on it but my question is this:
Do we need to install this in migration mode or not to begin with (i.e does migration mode force anything to be migrated straight away or will it give us the chance to move bits at a time ?

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks

Thanks, i've been flicking through that already but wasn't sure if the migration would force anything there and then.

So i'd run the schema update, create the answer file and then start the migration and this will then just install the server to the domain but not actually move anything ?

Thanks

it shouldn't do, SBs can be added to the domain, it will obtain all the FSMO roles but then the rest can happen as quickly or as slowly as you want.

Moving the FSMO roles will not effect anything
