  • Migrating from SBS 2008 to 2008 R2

    I'm in the process of migrating an SBS 2008 which the current domain name is to a new server running 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 and will have a new domain name. xxx.local.

    It seems I can't use the ADMT 3.1 tool to migrate the user account, group, and computers to the new domain because you can't create a trust from an SBS server.

    What do you guys recommend I do? The company has 75 workstations and I don't want to have to go to each machine and unjoin and then rejoin to the new domain.

    That is the problem with SBS

    Either you purchase the upgrade pack from MS or you have to migrated the user to a new domain

    you cannot create a trust from an SBS server nor add another DC into the domain either
