Is there a utility or test software that would tell me if I can run SBS 2011 on a server that has been running SBS 2003?  I will be making a fresh install.

The server must fulfill the minimum requirements for SBS 2011 (what version, essential, standard...?).

The main thing is that you need a 64bit CPU and depending on the 2011 version between 120 and 160GB free diskspace, and at least 4GB of RAM. If there is less of anything the installation won't even start.

It would appear that I will need a new server.  I do not have a 64 bit machine.
