Hi all:

I have a server (xxx.abc.com) that is my Exchange 2000 server right now.  I want to move everything from that server to a new more robust server (xxx.abc.com); with the same name and IP address.  Is this possible?  If so can you point towards the right direction please??

thanks for your time.

Forgot to mention that the Exchange server is using AD and I know that is not what microsoft suggests.  I will like to make the new server a member server.

Install a new domain controller and move all the FSMO  roles to your new server. then demote the your present Exchange DC to the member server. Wait for all the AD replications to take affect and then follow the
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;297289
 for the rest.

NOTE: its quite risky to demote the exchange server having the DC. Take utmost care in doing so.
before proceeding take a good backup of your active directory and your exchange server.
