Server/Exchange 2000 migration to Server/Exchange 2003

Posted on 2004-11-08

I would like to replace my current Server 2000 / Exchange 2000 DC with a Server 2003 / Exchange 2003 DC.  It is the only server on the network.  Is there any way to perform the migration while preserving the original server name?  Possibly using a 3rd machine as a temporary DC/Exchange Server?  Also, is there anything tricky I need to watch out for?
