"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

sure, I would say first,..upgrade the Exchange 5.5 server to Exch 2003

Then add it to the same organization as the cluster

From there check ms's info on adding a new exch 2003 server to a cluster
