Formating Exchange Server 5.5 and NT 4 and Installing Windows 2000 With exchange 5.5
Posted on 2004-09-23
I have a Server which is running Exchange 5.5 and NT 4, we are having problems with that machine so i need to format it and upgrade the Operating system on it. Now my question is if i backup everything in Exchange and Note all the Information That is set up in the current version of Exchange 5.5. Will i have any problems in restoring the Information to the Newly formatted machine.
What do i need to know, what should i look for and what should i do???
Ideally i want to put Exchange 2000 on the server. Is it better to Install 5.5 and make sure that works then upgrade to Exchange 2k? Help with this would be greatly appreciated... I do not want to start this whole process and have it fail on me..
