Any reccommendations for migrating from SBS 2000 to SBS 2008? I've been reading Eriq Oliver Neale's book called "Windows Small Business Server 2008 Unleashed". It talks about going from 2003 to 2008 but I haven't seen hardly anything about how to go from 2000 SBS to 2008. I can't believe my company is the only one in this position.....

Hello David,

I have a question, its regarding SBS 2008 Premium edition, I got cals for SQL 2008 which I installed on a different server in the same network.  

I am trying to achieve : Sharepoint databases from SBS move over to SQL 2008.  I am not able to do so, as each time I try doing so, the Sharepoint crashes on SBS 2008.

Please suggest or share the documentation on the same.

Dirch
