Demazter's article goes someway to answering my questions;
We are migrating from SBS2003 SP2 to 'Full Product', this was our option from MS after the SBS-EBS migration was a spectacular failure.
SBS2003 and production servers are all in VM and we have already migrated MOSS, Exchange (2003->2007) and SQL to standalone Server2008, what we need to do now is retire/remove the SBS2003 server.
To this end I have S2008x64 build in VM to use as the new DC and also want a BDC, Q1;
can we use any of the current S2008 boxes as BDC? (I believe the Exchange box is not a good idea for either role and do have several others).
Can I follow Demazter's excellent migration article (link above) and just ignore the parts appertaining to Exchange? (obviously not using the Exchange box as the DC in my case).
