  • Hi,

    I think there are three ways to accomplish this, because going direcly from exchange 2000 won't go.

    1. You can upgrade exchange 2000 to exchange 2003 and then migrate to sbs 2011 this will work fine.

    2. You can build a complete new SBS 2011 domain and use export import for exchange and copy all your data over.

    3. Go to sbsmigration.com and order the migration kit for this project. In short terms you extract the AD information from your old domain and then migrate that information to a SBS 2011 server. Advantage from this method is that your SBS 2011 server can end up with the same servername and ip address as the original server.
