Migrate old SBS 2000 box to new SBS 2003 box

    I have two boxes, 1) old box with SBS 2000 installed 2) new box with SBS 2003
    installed. I need to migrate the AD database from the SBS2000 box to the
    SBS2003 box.

    Will I need to place both boxes in the same network?

    I cannot seem to find documentation to complete this process. Please help.

    Thanks,

    Stephen

    Easiest way would have been to use a swing migration (www.sbsmigration.com)
    as the process to get the same AD etc. to the new SBS 2003. Since you've
    already installed it you need to either start over and use the swing or add
    all accounts etc. to the new SBS 2003 and rejoin the workstations to the
    domain manually.

    thanks, I am going to use the swing process. I need the migration to be
    transparent to the users.

    Thank you again.
