    I need to migrate my solution from sbs to std.
    I have 75 client, using file server, domain and exchange mailboxes.
    i have 2 new server with 2008 std r2 operating system. One for AD, other for
    Exchange 2010.
    Sbs server will be dismiss.

    Is possible migrate user account and mailboxs ?
    Is possible mantein the same domain name? (if not is not a problem)

    Have you a documents that explain step by step how to migrate ?

    Thank you very much

  2. Hi Lorenzo:

    By now there are thousands of references to various migration strategies
    listed in the various groups and elsewhere on the internet. Microsoft has
    made many documents available on the process.

    The best pointer I can give you is to inquire of www.sbsmigration.com, where
    they have worked out an organized and supported migration plan for all types
    of migrations.

    Please post the resolution to your
    issue so others may benefit

    I've done a similar migration. I second that you look at sbsmigration.com.
    The migration itself is not that difficult. The hard part is removing the
    SBS server then cleaning up Exchange and AD after the migration. There isn't
    a lot of information available on that phase of the migration. Here's some
    links that will help:






    There is a lot of conflicting information, particularly regarding
    certificates. Spend a lot of time reading and planning before you start.
