Hello guys...

I am yet to find documetation on moving Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2000 server to a 2003 server. I am not lookign for some 3rd party documentation from a non-MS site, but if the source is trustworthy i will accept that.

Thanks guys,
Adam

This is third party website...but uses only Microsoft technology to perform the migration.  I've followed this procedure in a test lab and in production.  Both times, the migration was successful.  I think this is a good resource with complete step-bystep instructions.

One extra comment - Exchange 2000 does not install on Windows 2003.  You'll need to migrate to Exchange 2003 on Server 2003.

Thanks NJcomp, I will definitly use this. But this is for moving a exchange 2000 on a 2k server to exch2k3 on win2k3. I'm not trying to be picky, but i know there are some issues that I should know about (or heard about) when moving Exchange 2k on a 2k server to server 2k3.



just to clear this up...

I want to move Exchange 2000 (running on a Windows 2000 server) to Server 2003 (installed on another server) If you can't find a specific article or document, how about some words of advice from REAL experince doing this..

Thanks again

Oh...sorry...I misunderstood.  But Netman66 is right.  Exchange 2000 can not run on Windows 2003.

From you document

"Exchange 2000 itself must be installed and run on a Microsoft Windows 2000 Server-based computer. You cannot install and run Exchange 2000 on a Windows Server 2003-based computer."

I think you need to move to Exchange 2003 if you want to place Exchange on a Windows 2003 server.  Now, you can run Exchange 2003 running on a Windows 2003 server in a Windows 2000 domain.  This is detailed in the document that I originally linked you to.

You'll have to read that MS link that you keep posted again.  In it, it clearly states:

"Exchange 2000 itself must be installed and run on a Microsoft Windows 2000 Server-based computer. You cannot install and run Exchange 2000 on a Windows Server 2003-based computer."
