I have a front end server with my active directory and the DCHP and Microsoft exchange on it. It is running window 2000 server along with windows exchange 2000server. The hard drive is getting close to being full. We are looking at getting a new server. How hard will it be to copy over all our Active directory and our DCHP and exchange server to the new computer. What are the best steps to change over.
Thank you.

Pretty easy do do, just install your new server as a second Domain controller, the Active directory will replicate itself to the new server automaticly.
