    it's the easiest way to export data + Postboxes an Import to new Machine
    (because there are not much users) or is there a solution to do it
    wizard-like? thanke a lot

  2. Hello Heinz,

    Thank you for posting to the SBS Newsgroup.

    I am sorry but from your description, I cannot have clear idea what exact
    goal you want to achieve. Please help me to confirm:

    a. Do you mean you want to migrate the CALs from a SBS 2K3 Standard Server
    to a SBS 2K3 Premium Server?

    Or

    b. You want to migrate the SBS 2K3 from one old machine to a new machine?

    ============

    To migrate SBS 2K3 to a new machine, you can install it on the new server
    and join it into the old SBS 2003 domain. After transferring the AD FSMO
    roles and migrating data, we can retire the old server.

    For detailed steps please see the following KB article:

    884453 How to install Small Business Server 2003 in an existing Active
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=884453

    After installing the new SBS 2003 server into the existing SBS 2003 domain,
    you can retire the old server.

    You also can use the ADMT tool to simplify the process of moving users,
    groups, and computers from one Active Directory? directory service domain
    to another, or of migrating from Windows 2000 Server domains to Active
    Directory domains.

    Please see our Migration White Paper for more detail information:
