Confused over 5.5 to E2K3 migration
Posted on 2004-04-05
I am very confused with reference to a planned NT to 2003 migration.
We currently have an existing NT4 domain running E5.5
We have purchased new hardware and created a new 2003 domain with E2K3.The 2K3 domain is mixed, there is a trust set up between the NT domain and the 2K3 domain.
We will be migrating the users, department at a time over the next few months. My question(s) are:
How do I join the E2k3 server to the 5.5 org? Do I need to install AD on the NT domain (ie, upgrade the pdc to 2K3)
We need co-existence between the 2 exchange servers, mail will still be coming in to the same gateway, and we need users on the NT domain to receive their mail aswell as new users on the 2K3 domain, how do I achieve this?
I can't use the ADMT because I am not native, I can't go native because the trust needs to be in place to allow access to resources on the NT domain
Please, please help!!
Many thanks in advance
