    Hi there. I am migrating SBS from 2003 to 2008 and I get this error. Which server do the changes need to be made on? The source server or the destination server?

    Cheers
    Paul

      Hi Paul,

      If you are in the middle of the migration, then it doesn’t matter because both DNS servers should be in sync. If not then you should do this on the SBS 2008 server also make sure the DNS setting of you SBS 2008 is using itself as DNS server.
