I am looking to transition from a SBS2003 server to a WinSrv2k8R2 machine. I do not require Exchange on the new machine.
I have found and read the following excellent articles:
Before starting the process I would like to clarify the following:
a) As I am not migrating exchange do I first need to remove it from the SBS machine or simply ignore it?

1) adprep32 /forestprep
2) adprep32 /domainprep
3) adprep32 /domainprep /gpprep
4) adprep32 /rodcprep
