Hi All

Ive been trawling through all the feedback for some time, and am having a bit of a problem. I need to retire my old SBS2003 (replace it with a machine running Server std 2008 R2 x64), which basically runs the domain: exchange, ftp, vpn authentication, file and print as well as a few other apps. My problem, is that I want to seperate Exchange 2010 from the DC completely by installing and running it on another 2008 R2 server, but all the instructions Ive read so far, entail migration from SBS2003 to a single 2008 R2 server running exchange 2010. Has anybody out there had any experience with migrating SBS2003 to 2 seperate servers, one acting as DC etc. and the other running exchange 2010, as I sure as heck havent, and I really dont want to muck this up as its going to be happening in a production environment.
