  • Migrating from a Exchange 2000 to a new server with Exchange 2003

    Hi everybody,
    this is the scenario:

    1 server (A) with:

    AD 2000
    Exchange 2000

    A new server (B) will be installed. It will be the new DC and the old one will be dismissed.

    So, the steps involved are:

    AD 2000 to AD 2003
    EXC 2000 to EXC2003.

    I am not sure what would be the best way to do it.

    What I have in mind is:

    1) Installation of Server 2003
    2) Adprep on A
    3) DCpromo on B
    4) Role transfer from A to B

    Now things get muddy. What I have to do with Exchange? How can I transfer settings and mailboxes from A to B?

    Thanks a lot!

    1. About moving the DC - the steps are correct.
    2. About the Exchange migration - you can use this one:
    (Install new Exchange 2003 on the new server, including setup /forestprep + setup /domaintprep, Replicatte PF including System Folders and Move mailboxes):

      Dear

      I also migrate the SERVER 2000 to SERVER 2003 same in EXCHANGE 2000 to EXCHANGE 2003 in zero down time

      There are lot of software avaliable on net but the software which i use is IDEAL MIGRATON ..this is very good software it backup the AD with user,ou and there password so you can migrate your server from 2000 to 2003 in zero down time

      in exchange move you mail box stores
