How to migrate windows 2000 DC and Exchange 2000 on 2003 changing hardware
Posted on 2004-10-28
Hello all !
I'm planning how to migrate my server. I want to migrate one Server (PDC w2k + AD + Exchange 2000) on two differents servers.
I want a new Windows 2003 server with AD and a new Exchange 2003 with back-end/front-end technology.
Note : I'm configuring a DMZ. So, my new Exchange server will be configured in back-end and I will install Exchange front-end on my webserver.
I'have read a lot of informations about that and I finally decided to use ADMT v.2.
Have you an idea about the order I must proceed ?
Of course, in first I will install my 2 news servers in windows 2003 server. But after ? What must I migrate from my W2k server in first ? What the order ?
Note : I must change my domain name, so... When i do then change ? Before or after migration ? Are there any links between W2k old server and W2k3 new server during the migration ?
For Exchange 2003 configuration, which network ports must be blocked or not between the DMZ and the LAN considering there is a Front-end and a back-end server ?
Thanks a lot !
