Have a small 15-user network using 2003 SBS, primarily serves as file and print server and Exchange. Client purchased new SBS 2011 server. Need to move all roles to new server and then demote 2003 server and remove from network.  Basic plan is to add 2011 to network, dcpromo, copy all files to new server, then configure for email, which I have my little experience in. (Too bad I can't have new server with exact same name, I think the transsition would be easier that way, correct?) Any suggestions and warnings is appreciated....
