Upgrade SBS 2003
Posted on 2014-01-17
I rarely work with SBS servers but I have a new client that has an SBS 2003 server. They are using the Exchange part of the server. The server is getting old and they would like to replace it. We are talking about a company that has 20 PCs on the network.
Here are my questions:
1) Is there a new version of SBS servers or has this gone away?
2) If it has gone away, my previous dealings with SBS servers (prior to 2003 version) was that in Active Directory you are only allowed one domain controller. If this is still true are there any steps to transfer the AD, DNS, etc. from the SBS server to a Windows 2012 Standard Edition server?
3) With the newest Exchange (if there is no update for SBS server) is it advised for it to go on it's own server or not?
We are in the planning stages of this so any help would be greatly appreciated.
