    New Domain = ABC (Windows 2003) is windows 2008 will be best ??? as down the line people will upgrade their domain & OS if require.....

    Exchange org = OIL (Exchange 2007)

    WE have around 60 location where exchange 2003 & win2k3 as dc+gc is configured since we are splitting the company so may be around 25 location will move into new company and their USERID, FILES, & MAILBOX will move to new server & on new domain...

    Domain : we are planning to build up new forest parellely and using ADMT migrate the users and for data file migrattion tool..

    Here is the proposed AD & Exchange network.

    We are planningto deeploy the windows 2003 AD (What if we deploy windows 2008, will supporting windows 2008 AD will be challenge??) for new forest and exchange 2007 with SCR with HUB & CAS with NLB. and ofcourse SCR/DR at remote location. edge server is replaced by some third party software(hardware appliance)

    for user/machine/profile migration will useADMT tool v.3 and power shell for mailbox movemen.

    any suggestion for new infra design...
