My company has purchased a smaller office.  The smaller office has a SBS 2003, with IP scheme of 192.168.1.*.  The smaller office has 12 computers, network printer, voice over IP phone system, Cisco ASA 5505.  
I have already moved the users email to our main office, all is well there.  I am planning to replace their SBS2003 server with a 2012 Essentials server.  

My goal is to replace their server and change their IP scheme.  I am fine with the phone system, network printer and ASA.  I am looking for ideas in what sequence to make these changes.  Would it be easier to "start over" with the new 2012 Essentials server.
In the planning stages here and want to make sure I don't miss anything.

I don't see why you should start over unless there are serious problems with the SBS.

There is great documentation to follow to migrate:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj200112.aspx

Just make sure you follow the steps exactly as written.

As for IP Scheme?  Server 2012 Essentials actually works best by getting its IP via DHCP running on your ASA 5505.  When you connect client workstations to the new server via http://<servername>/connect it will download a small client that keeps machines in contact with the server (so if the server IP changes, no problem).
