Trying to migrate SharePoint Services from SBS 2003 to Server 2008R2

I am following this how to: http://demazter.wordpress.com/2010/04/29/migrate-small-business-server-2003-to-exchange-2010-and-windows-2008-r2/ and am stuck at the migrating SharePoint Services section.

I've attached the database.  I create the website within IIS.  I made the change in DNS.  I then start SharePoint 3.0 Central Admin and click application management.  Then create or extend web application.  Then create a new web application.  I go all the way through doing exactly what the article says but after I submit it it comes back with "Value does not fall within the expected range."

There's nothing in event viewer.  Nothing in the log files.  Any ideas?

Try this and report results.

1. Create a backup of the current content database using SQL Mangement Studio
2. Copy the backup to the new SharePoint/SQL server
3. Restore database on new server
4. Verify your farm account (account running SharePoint Timer service) on new server has access to the restored db
5. Create a web application on your new farm.  Make sure you have the correct URL
6. Go into Central Admin - App Mgmt - Content Databases.  Select your new web app and drop the database.
7. Click add database and specify the name of the restored database
8. Update DNS (if using same URL) to point to the new server

Instead of creating a new site manually I went through and let the create web app wizard do it for me and there was one portion I wasn't really sure what to do and that was the credentials for the authentication NTLM etc.  So I just told it to use a service account and this created the site etc.  I then went back, deleted that site I just manually created and then followed through with the instructions on the link I listed in the OP and it ultimately went through this time.
