Hi Experts,

we want to migrate an SBS03 to SBS11.

Is it any problem to first make an additional DC with a 2008R2

So the steps would be:
Join 2008R2 to SBS2003 domain
forestprep/adprep to 2008R2 AD
dcpromo 2008R2
run migration prep tool
start migration installation

Does anybody know?

Thanks in advance
