How did you do the migration?  An SBS is not a regular Windows DC - you
can't add a new one to the domain and just transfer the roles.  The best
way to migrate with that idea in mind is by using Jeff Middleton's Swing
Migration (www.sbsmigration.com).

Service on server \\OLDSERVERNAME could not be contacted".

AD, FMSO Roles, Exchange mailboxes etc instead of creating a new domain.
think this is where I have gone wrong as it would have been easier to
the new domain I think due to me only having ten workstations on the 

Is this event anything to worry about? I have restarted the License
service but this has had no effect.

If any further info required please give me a shout.
