  • upgrade exchange server 2000 to exchnage server 2003

    Dear Techies,

    In our environment we are running exchange server 2000 in win 2000 server platform and the AD is also in win 2000 server, now we want to upgrade the os to win 2003 server and also exchange server to 2003, can anybody explain me the procedure to update the exchange server OS, which server we have to update first exchange or AD.


    thanks in advance for your valuable support.

    1st thing I would do is get a windows 2003 server in that environment and promote it to a dc. This will take your 2k domain to a 2k3 domain. then i would migrate exch2k to exchange 2003 (dont upgrade as its not really recommended)

    search this site for steps to migrate exch2k to exchange 2003 - there are tons of info on there about it.

        Swing it to new hardware.
        Do not do in-place upgrades unless you want to practise your DR procedures.
