Question : Migrate SBS 2003 to Hyper-V

Hi All

Hoping you can advise on an upcoming project Im about to tackle.

I have a client who currently has SBS 2003, running AD, its a FAP server and also running Exchange 2003.
They are moving locations and also wish to upgrade hardware etc during the process.

My plan is to implement Server 2008 (probably core) and install Hyper-V on it.  I then plan to create 2 VM's (1 x DC,DNS,FAP) and the other running Exchage 2010.

Can anyone envisage any issues with this first of all?

I am also ideally wishing to migrate everything accross, that is to say create a new domain environment, and use LDIFDE or CSVDE etc to migrate AD objects accross into the new domain.
My main concern is the mailbox migration and whether this is possible and which tools anyone recommends.

I appreciate any help

I couldn't resolve so I made a WORKAROUND.

vi /usr/bin/

exec("service mysql restart >> /tmp/mysql-shmuel.log");

chmod a+rx
vi /etc/inittab
