Migrate Small Business Server 2003 to Exchange 2010 and Windows 2008 R2

This guide is intended to provide step by step instructions on how to migrate from Small Business Server 2003 to Windows 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010. For this migration to work you will need the following software: Windows Small Business Server 2003 (SBS 2003) Windows 2008 Server or Windows 2008 R2 Server Exchange Server 2010 Microsoft Office Filter Pack from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=60c92a37-719c-4077-b5c6cac34f4227cc&displaylang=en Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with integrated Service Pack 2.Only the version with Integrated Service Pack 2 will install on Windows 2008 R2. You can download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9FB41E51-CB03-4B47-B89A396786492CBA&displaylang=en Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express which can be downloaded from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c243a5ae-4bd1-4e3d-94b85a0f62bf7796&displaylang=en You will need to download both the 32bit and 64bit versions

Steps required: 1. Health Checks on Small Business Server 2003 2. Join new Windows 2008 Server to the domain as a member server 3. Prepare Active Directory for Windows 2008 R2 Server

4. Make Windows 2008 R2 Server a Domain Controller of the Existing Small Business Server 2003 Domain 5. Transfer DHCP Service 6. Install Exchange 2010 7. Installing Exchange 2010 SSL Certificate 8. Migrate Exchange Data 9. Migrate SharePoint Services 10. Migrate shared user data 11. Uninstall Exchange 2003 from Small Business Server 2003 12. Transfer all 5 FSMO roles to Windows 2008 Domain Controller 13. DCPROMO SBS 2003 server so it is no longer a domain controller and remove from network

It s important that the steps are followed in order as different stages make different changes to the way in which your server operates. For example you MUST make the 2008 server a domain controller before you install Exchange. Step 1 - Health Checks on Small Business Server 2003

The absolute first thing you need to do is take a SYSTEM STATE backup of your Small Business Server as well as a full system backup. There is little chance of the data getting lost but the SYSTEM STATE backup backs up Active Directory so that if it all goes wrong we can recover it if needed. What you then need to do on the SBS 2003 server is to make sure you have all the latest available updates. This means you should at a minimum have: Windows 2003 Service Pack 2 Windows Small Business Server Service Pack 1 Microsoft Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2

Once you have installed all of the above, run Windows Update and make sure you select the option in the blue banner bar across the top for Microsoft Update. Microsoft Update will then allow you to update all Microsoft products installed on the server providing a more comprehensive update solution. Keep running the check and installing all updates until there are no more available.

Check the health of your Active Directory by running DCDIAG, if there is anything reported as an error fix it before moving on. Run the Small Business Server 2003 Best Practices Analyser from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=3874527A-DE19-49BB-800F352F3B6F2922&displaylang=en Make sure you fix any problems the analyser identifies. If you cannot, then why not raise a question on EE to have our Experts help you? A common problem that can cause this migration to fail is that the SBS 2003 server does not have its own IP address listed for DNS in the network properties under TCP/IP. If this is the case, update it so that it does (do not use the loopback address). Step 2 - Join new Windows 2008 Server to the domain as a member server

To join a Windows 2008 Server to the Small Business Server domain we need to first ensure that it is receiving a correct IP Address Allow the Windows 2008 Server to receive a DHCP Address from your Small Business Server. Run an IPCONFIG /ALL to check this. The DNS Server entry is probably the most important. This should be configured to use the IP Address of your Small Business Server for DNS. To test, it might be worth just pinging the SBS 2003 server from a command prompt just to check the name can be resolved by doing the following: Click Start > Run > type CMD and then click OK type PING SBS2003SERVERNAME

If you get a good response then we can try and join the 2008 server to the domain. To Join the Server to the Domain, do the following: Click Start and right click on Computer and select properties From the screen that opens under the section called Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings click Change settings. Then click on Change At this point if you haven t already specified the name of your new server you can do so

Check the radio button next to where it says Domain and enter the domain name that the Small Business Server 2003 belongs to Click OK At which point you will be prompted for a username and password for a user that has permissions to add the computer to the domain Once you have added your credentials and click OK you will then be informed the server requires restarting. Please restart to resume the migration

Step 3 - Prepare Active Directory for Windows 2008 R2 Server

The first step of this process is to raise the Functional Levels of the SBS 2003 server. This involves raising the domain and forest functional level of Active Directory and the Operational mode of Exchange Server. To raise the Domain Functional Level do the following: Click Start > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers Right click on the domain name and select Raise Domain Functional Level In the drop down box select Windows Server 2003 and click OK (if this has already been done don t worry)

To raise the Forest Functional Level do the following: Click Start > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Domains and Trusts Right click where it says Active Directory Domains and Trusts and select Raise Forest Functional Level.

And we also need to raise the Exchange Operational Mode. To do this, you need to do the following: Click Start > All Programs > Microsoft Exchange > System Manager Right click on the Organisation name right at the top of the list and select properties In the dialogue box check the Operational Mode, if it says Mixed Mode click the Change Mode button and say yes to the dialogue box asking if you want to change to native mode

Before we can add the Windows 2008 Server as a domain controller to the SBS 2003 domain, we need

Accept the default setting on the 'Configure DHCPv6 Stateless Mode' and the Specify IPv6 DNS Server Settings. we need to make some changes to the Small Business Server DHCP settings. Whilst we can just turn one off and turn the other on this will cause you to have to release and renew the settings on the client machines manually for them to pick up the new DHCP Service. then Install on the confirmation screen. The alternative is to wait the 4 days before your client machines request an IP address renewal. Before we can switch over. On the 'Authorize DHCP Server' screen.

(You might want to leave this overnight just to make absolutely sure) Once you are happy that all the clients have now got a 2 hour lease from the Windows 2008 server do the following: Navigate to Start > Administrative Tools > DHCP Expand the Windows 2008 servername and IPv4 then right click on the scope listed . This action will cause all DHCP clients to renew their addresses and gain an address that has a 2 hour lease. right click and select delete. NOTE: If you have any reserved addresses make sure they are not highlighted otherwise they will be deleted also. highlight all DHCP Leases. Click OK Then under Address Leases.In the section titled 'Lease duration for DHCP clients' we are going to change it to 2 hours from the default of 8 days. Check the Address Leases and refresh until you are happy that all the clients now have an IP address.

To do this.Install Exchange 2010 Because we performed all the diagnostic checks at the start. You can now disable the DHCP Server service on the Small Business Server. it is not a recommended configuration. as this plays a part in DNS registration. Please note that even though the installation of any version of Exchange Server on a domain controller is supported by Microsoft. This can be done very easily using the Windows PowerShell. The first step is to install the pre-requisites on Windows 2008 to allow the Exchange 2010 installation to complete. .Select Activate This will start the DHCP Service on the 2008 server and deactivate the service on the Small Business Server (this will happen automatically because when Small Business Server detects another DHCP server on the network it shuts its own down). You will now find that in approximately 1 to 2 hours time. Once you have done this restart the NETLOGON service so that the DNS entries are added to the Windows 2008 DNS. To do this modify the TCP/IP properties of the network card and change the Primary DNS servers IP address to that of the Windows 2008 Server.
