I am preparing to upgrade my exchange server from W2K 2000 SP4 to 2003; I have already upgraded Exchange from 2000 to 2003.  I know about forestprep and domainprep to extend the schema; I was wondering if there are any gotchas when upgrading from w2k to 2003 with exchange 2003 already installed?

This was a pretty clean install for my organization.  One thing to be aware of is there will be about 18 critical updates for server 2003 when you upgrade so get those applied first thing.  I was concerned about the IIS upgrade aspect and how it would affect our SSL certificate but had no issues there.  We did have to reinstall our AntiSpam and Antivirus products after the upgrade as well.  Make sure that your server antivirus has the proper exclusions to keep from swiss cheesing your databases (See the following MS link for exclusions:)

Again, for the most part it was pretty clean and efforless and we are running everything on the one box.  Any particular enviromental variables that are giving you pause?  Let me know.
