  • Exchange 2k3 on 2k Box

    We have Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2000 server and were wanting to upgrade the Exhchange to 2003 on that box. I have found some articles on the upgrade on the Win 2000 server, but the question is will we be able to use ActiveSync while using that 2000 server with 2003 exchange?

    The server is not a DC just a member server, we have a free upgrade to 2003 Exchange so that is why we want to implement it. If not we are going to get a new server with Exchange 2007. But we would like to go this route first if possible. Thanks

    Exchange 2003 on Windows 2000 - while it can be done, it isn't something I would recommend. Put it on Windows 2003. If you are considering the move to Exchange 2007 then you will need at least Windows 2003 to deploy that. Windows 2000 is a nine year old product and should be dropped as soon as possible.
