SBS 2003 to 2012 Migration Query

Hello
I have a client who currently has 1 x SBS 2003 server controlling the network and email for the company.  They also have a terminal server member server running server 2008.

They want to migrate to vmware and to have the following setup:
VM1 = Server 2012 / DC1
VM2 = Server 2012 / Exchange 2010 Standard
VM3 = Server 2012 / Terminal Server
VM3 = Server 2012 / File & Print

I am looking for any guides that will help to migrate from SBS 2003 to the new environment, splitting the roles to dedicated servers rather than the all in one SBS solution.  Any ideas or recommendations?

Thanks

Thanks for the help. that looks like some in depth guides, although I cant find anyone taking the leap from 2003 sbs to 2012 server.  I take it these steps should work for server 2012?

At the moment this isn't going to happen:

VM2 = Server 2012 / Exchange 2010 Standard

Exchange 2010 is NOT supported on Windows 2012 until Exchange 2010 SP3 is released.
You also cannot migrate to Exchange 2013 (which is supposed on Windows 2012) as there is no migration path from Exchange 2003.

Therefore you have two options (retaining the existing domain):
1. Migrate to Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010, remove the SBS server, then migrate to Exchange 2013 on Windows 2012.
2. Migrate to Exchange 2010 on Windows 2008 R2.

Everything else is pretty much standard stuff. Forget it is SBS, just do a regular domain mgiration, just leaving the FSMO roles on the SBS server until everything else (including Exchange) has gone.

Simon.
