Hello Everyone -

I just recently finished the process of adding a new SBS 2008 Prem Server to an existing 2008 Domain with a Standard 2008 Domain Controller. I created the sytem state backup, created the answer file, and used that for my new installation on a second server (SBS 2008). One thing I did forget to do though, is run the source prep. Not sure if that was too detrimental since everything is working?

Now that the installation is finished, I see the new server in Active Directory under Servers and see both servers now as Global Catalog Servers. I know i can keep this setup for the next 21 days, however, what is needed next to start moving Active Directory, DNS and DHCP Server over to the new server? I know to use the migration tool, but just wanted to see if there was anything that wasnt in writing before I start.
