SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 migration headache!
Hoping someone can help me :(
After spending yesterday prepping the source server- running both SBS 2003
Best Practices Analyzer and Exchange Best Practices Analyzer (and resolving
all issues until they both came back clean), full backup, Migration Prep
Tool, answer file etc I was finally ready to get going with the destination
server today. I was very thorough with the documentation, taking it all step
All looked well, until it seemed to hang on what looked to be a final step.

we get a

I can't access OWA on an SBS 2003 server, for any user.
Not sure what is stopping it - is it ISA settings?
I've checked in Active Directory Users and Domains under the user and they
are permitted to use OWA.
Also tried to connect using Sever Activesync and a smart phone, but that
Hope you can help.
Could be ISA server stopping OWA from functioning, could also be a lot of
other things (like permisions on folders, web site etc).
What happens when you try to access OWA?

We had a domain which was working in a SBS2003 normally but since we had
to change the hardware we added a second DC which is a windows 2008 and
transferred all the roles to it, and let it working alone.
Everything is fine now with the win2008 as a only Domain Controller
We now have to reinstall back the SBS2003 and transfer everything to it
from the win2008, is that possible? is there any how-to or best
practices? As it seems that all i can do is start a new domain from scratch.
There is an official MS document for adding SBS 2003 to a Server 2003 domain,
but...Change from SBS 2003 to SBS 2003 R2

I have an old server running Win SBS 2003. This is a new client and i
just found the installation to be all screwed up (they are not even
using Exchange, the domain is not .local, I cant find the SBS
management panel, etc ) and barring any magic solution that allows me
to improve on the current install, what i really want is to start from
scratch, probably on different hardware (new server).

...SBS 2003 VPN Frustration!
I hope someone here can help. I saw a similar post that someone here was
able to solve so I'm pinning my hopes on that.
Let me try and provide as much information as possible.
I'm trying to setup the software VPN on the SBS so that remote users can
be connected in to the server (so they can use local Outlook Exchange,
can access the shared data folders on the main office server, etc).
Testing this setup on our own system, I can connect into the server
using VPN but cannot access anything on the network.

I really appreciate your inputs regarding my dilemma and made me think to
change course with this migration and obtain private IP's for our network
instead of the public ones. I will need now to figure out where and how to
start changing our IP's! and what is involved.
Hope after changing to private IP's, the migration will run without any
glitches. I'm keeping me fingers and toes crossed.
If you have any suggestion or links on how or where to start to enable me
changing IP's from public to private; then PLEASE let me know.

There's an old NT4 SBS server in place with Exchange 5.5, 10 users. A new
2003 SBS server has arrived. What's the best way to move everything to the
new and shut down the old?
I tried to make a trust relationship, but you can't do that with SBS 2003!.
Should I use Outlook to log on as a user, copy all data to a .pst from the
old Exchange 5.5, then make new users and mailboxes on the new server and
copy from the .pst to the new 2003 mailbox? Only 10 users, 700MB in total.

They currently use VNC quite regularly (to work from home, foreign work-

much involve switching to Remote Web Workplace. I'm not sure if this is
essential, but it seems like it would make more sense to have remote

Is it possible to go straight to Standard 2008, to migrate their CALs and

I have received from my Action Pack subscription, the SBS 2003 Premium R2 DVD
and I want to upgrade my current production environment (SBS 2003 Premium
SP1) to R2.
Based on what I read about R2, I understand that I can upgrade SQL Server to

Can you please let me know if I can upgrade to SQL Svr 2005 and how to do
that considering my CRM 3.0 installation?

didnt and now am asking for assistance to undo it.
