I have migrated form Microsoft SBS 2003 to Microsoft SBS 2011
part of the process is to Migrate the emails from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010
it appeared to go ok , but when I run the Best Practices Analyzer  it states that the first Administrative group is the old exchange server .

I have also try to move the store on the new server but it won't complete the move and errors although it dose create a new store in the new location .

I believe these are related

They are unrelated.
The old admin group is left in place and should not be touched.

How are you moving the database? As this is SBS 2011 you should use the wizard in the SBS management console.

When trying to move the Store Database we are using the management console
but it is the wizard that fails.

I don't see these issues as being related.

What do you mean regarding moving the store?  Are you moving it from one drive to another?  What is the error message?  Where are your log files located?  You're likely running out of log file space when trying to move the store.

Have you started the process of removing your old exchange server?  That will remove it from AD & get it out of the Best Practices Analyzer.

If you resolved the question yourself, then you should have asked for the question to be closed in your favour.
As for the point on partition sizes, it is best practise to move everything off the C drive. If I received a server with a 500gb C drive I would immediately wipe the machine and rebuild it, as that is a poor storage configuration.
