We plan to migrate our existing 32-bit SBS 2003 Std to the new SBS 2008 Std.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a second server which can be used as a new SBS 2008, it means
that our current server has to be migrated to the new sbs2008
I know that in place migration from 32-bit SBS2003 to 64-bit SBS2008 is not possible, correct ?
I can use my desktop computer for migration but it has just a single hard drive but it is 64-bit capable though.
I was wondering if it would be possible to migrate somehow our powerful server with sbs2003 to the desktop computer (to sbs2008), format existing sbs2003 and migrate back from desktop sbs2008 to the powerful server sbs2008.
I know that all this sounds very confusing and I would be happy to do just a single migration from one server to another but at the moment we can’t afford another server.
Could you please suggest me the best way to do the migration ?
