We need to upgrade our domain controller server asap as the hardware seems to be failing and it is 8 years old.  Currently we are set up with SBS 2003 as the domain controller, a Windows server 2008 for our database server, and a Terminal Server 2008.  Most clients are XP, and office 2003.

I just wanted some advice on the best software upgrade.  Would SBS 2008 be good enough to be the DC and work with the other servers or is it better to get another windows server 2008 or 10 plus exchange 2008/10.  Would we need to upgrade our client software?  of course purchase cost and licensing cost is an important consideration

Any tips appreciated.
