  • SBS 2008 almost reached 75 users.


    Our company have almost reached our 75 user limit for SBS2008. What is the best way to migrate over to Server 2008? Is it an easy process?

    We run exchange and AD.

    So I've come up with the following high level plan.

    • add 2008 r2 server
    • promo to dc
    • install exchange and migrate mailboxes from SBS2008
    • when sbs box is doing nothing more than being a dc, shut it down and seize the FSMO roles on the new 2008 r2 box.

    Do people concur with this or am I missing something?

    How will I point all my 75 desktop users to the new exchange server automatically?

      have you looked at swingmigration kits ? I think you can go from sbs to full server..

        You are missing how to remove teh first Exchange server from an organisation!
        Look it up or invest in the relevant swing migration kit - your choice.
