Note that Exchange is not migrated in itself, so PST backups of all mail folders is required using the process documented in the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196492.

This may work for SBS 2000 to SBS 2008 Premium (as indicated) Fails miserably for SBS Standard however, because you can't install SBS 2008 Standard in the same domain as SBS 2000. Fails with Domain already exists error.

Make sure you aren't trying to create a new forest or new domain. It's just the standard process for adding a DC.

"10. On the Choose a Deployment Configuration page, click Existing forest, click Add a domain controller to an existing domain, and then click Next."
