  • Domain Upgrade

    I am planning on upgrading our domain from Windows 2000 to 2003
    1 of my Exchange 2000 servers is running on Windows 2000 sp3 not sp4.
    For various reasons installing sp4 is not an option.
    I read a post somewhere that I should have sp4 on my exchange servers before the domain upgrade. The domain controllers and the exchange servers are on different servers.

    After the domain is upgraded we are looking to migrate to either Exchange 2003 or 2007.

    Any advice would be great..

    2. Windows 2000 SP3 is OK for Exchange, but you need that your Windows 2000 domain controllers will have SP4 before upgrading.

    3. After the domain upgrade, I would recommand you to migrate to Exchange 2007:

        If they are running Windows 2000 SP3, then I would imagine they are not running it on 64bit hardware. I only bring this up as there was no mention of a hardware purchase/upgrade.
