I've been reading that adding a windows 2003 server to NT 4.0 network isn't a good idea.
I have a Windows Small Business Server 4 (which has windows NT 4 and Exchange 5.5) with about ten Windows XP professional workstations. And DDS-4 tape backup with Veritas software.
The server hardware is pretty old so we want to upgrade to brand new server hardward with lots of power and also to Windows Small Business Server 2003, rather than the 4.0. And it also has DDS-4 tape backup drive with newer version of the Veritas backup Exec.
We also have a DSL internet service.
Now, what is the best plan of action to install the SBS 2003 and take down the SBS 4.0 and not lose any data and Exchange information.
I would like to find out the best step by step method for smooth transition.
