  • Moving Exchange to new server 2008 machine

    Guys,

    Quick question, Currently we have a Windows Server 2003 64bit running Exchange 2007 SP1. I want to move this to a new Server 2008 machine and also move the Exchange. Eventually I will remove the Server 2003 box.

    The process I am going to follow is
    1. Prepare AD /domainprep
    2. Replicate the DC 2k3 to 2k8
    3. Move 5 server roles (PDC Emulator etc...)
    4. Install Exchnage & Server Roles
    5. Move Mailboxes
    6. Change MX Records and CName etc...
    7. run setup.com /mode:remove

    The question I ask (maybe a bit obvious but stay with me) is, after I run the AD prep /domainprep do I also need to extend the Schema for exchange 2007 on the new 2008 server?

    Thanks.
Working...
