  • Hi,

    I find the following information which may useful to you.

    In order to migrate Windows server 2000 SBS to Windows server 2008, we can join Windows server 2008 to the existing SBS 2000 domain. For this process, you can refer to the following article:

    Join a new Windows Server 2008 server to the SBS domain and promote it to a DC:
    http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServerSolutions/SBS/en/library/eca2caef-d7be-41c1-8cf8-02cf8681e84f1033.mspx?mfr=true

    Then, we should configure the new server to be a GC and host DNS; Transfer the FSMO roles to the new DC. Here, I list general steps for each action for your reference:

    Configure the new server to be a GC
    =================================
    1. Enable Global Catalog on new server and manually Check Replication Topology and afterwards manually trigger replication (Replicate Now) to synchronize Active Directory database between 2 replicas.

    Please note: It will some time to replicate GC between DC, please wait some time with patience.

    2. Disable Global Catalog on old DC.

    Transfer FSMO to the new DCs
    =======================
    You can refer to the following article to perform step.

    Using Ntdsutil.exe to transfer or seize FSMO roles to a domain controller

    DNS server installation on new server
    ==========================
    1. Install DNS component on new server and configure it as a new DNS Server (Active Directory Integrated-Zone is preferred). All the DNS configuration should be replicated to the new DNS server with Active Directory Replication.

    2. Make all the clients change TCP/IP configuration to point to new server as DNS.

    You may configure TCP/IP on all the clients, or adjust DHCP scope settings to make them use the new DNS server.

    After doing these, we can start to migrate Exchange server to the new server. Finally, if everything works fine with the new server, you may run DCPROMO to demote the old DC.

    In addition, you can also refer to the following website that introduces a new method 'swing' to migrate SBS server, which is a process to accomplish either a version upgrade or server replacement migration without giving up the domain and the server name:
