  • Transition from exchange 2000 to exchange 2007

    I am planning to do above transition for exchange,

    What I have,

    AD based on Windows 2003 (it is in mixed mode)
    2 DC
    one exchange server 2000 on windows 2000

    what I want,

    Purchase new hardware and install exchange 2007 on it and then move mailboxes from old exch to new one and after that if the move is successful decommission the old exch.

    So for I have come across this article about the move

    http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/...007-Part1.html

    is this article good enough for my situation, are there any issues that I need to keep in mind that may occur?

    I have my AD in mixed mode and I believe it has to be in native mode, are there any complication if I change the mode to native?

    If any body has done this transition recently can you please share some light on the area that I need to be careful with?

    Many thanks,

    if ALL your DCs are Windows 2003, then you should be able to change to native mode instead of mixed mode for the directory services.

    ensure you don't confuse the mixed-mode of Exchange with the mixed-mode of AD - you need to adjust exchange to native mode too.

    Apart from that - the instrructions on that site seem to be ok..

        Yantra, I've got some articles as well, they are more for 2003 than 2000 but a lot of it is still the same. Between them and the MSExchange.org articles you should have just about everything you need.
