  • Setup environment Migration Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007

    Hi I've been tasked to setup a Test enironment for the Migration of Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 . We want to test and document the process

    I need to know the minimal setup that i need to put in place to have this thing working

    for example can i use one machine to do that what will be the configuration for such a Machine (OS- Programs installed ,

    can i use 2 machines or plus

    please i need all the scenarios but i insist on the one that is cheapest

    thx

        if the machine could cope with it you could split the dc and ex03 roles as well.

          You need to look at your environment - if you have Exchange and DC on separate machines then you should do that in your test system. VMWARE/Virtual PC would be the ideal tool. I do all of my work in VMWARE. Even with just 2gb of RAM you can run three or four virtual machines.
