moving exchange 2000 server off a domain controler to new hardware and possibly upgrading to exchange 2003
Posted on 2004-09-18
Hi, I need to move my existing exchange 2000 server off of a domain controller and on to its own machine. We are planning to upgrade all of our servers to Windows server 2003. the current plan is to install windows 2000 on another machine and install exchange 2000 on it. We have a firewall and it currently sends all smtp traffic on port 25 to the current server. So If i move exchange to another I will need to redirect that traffic to the new server. We have 54 mail boxes and 8 public folders. Of course my organization wants no downtime and no loss of email What is the fastest and safest meathod to do this. Can it be done using disk imaging software? Help!!!
