Move Exchange 2000 server to another computer with the same name in the same domain
Posted on 2004-09-10
I have a domain with Windows 2000 server with AD and also my file server and a second machine as an exchange server. The exchange server is old and too small and I got a new server. What are the steps for moving exchange from the old server to the new one. I know that I have to extract the data (mailboxes and public folders - I have used exmerge before if that is the way to go) and I can rename the old server so that I can give the new one the same name. Is there anything that I have to do to AD to prepare for the move? I have found lots of articles describing move from Exchange 5.5 to 2000, but none for moving from 2000 to 2000. Any help with the proper steps and procedures would be appreciated.
