      Hello,
      The migration is not an easy task. You have to prepare it carefully.
      Keep in mind that direct migration (on place) is not possible. First you have to migrate to Exchange 2000 and after that Exchange 2000 to 2003.
      I suggest you to read this guide:

          Hi,

          As per my knowledge an inplace migration from exchange 5.5 to 2003 is an impossible task, but there are 2 possible ways of migration

          1. Upgrading the existing exchange 5.5 server to 2000 first, and then later upgrade the same 2000 exchange server to 2003 (Ofcou this is not at all recommonded)

          2. migrate the existing exchange 5.5 server By using an temp server installed with win2003 + exchange 2003 + AD Connecter, move the complete mailbox stores (ths is nothing but your backup of 5.5), 4.Uninstall Exchange 5.5 from that server and install Exchange 2003. Move the mailboxes and public folders off of the temporary server and back onto your production server where they belong.


          All the best
