Should I upgrade my 2000 DC to 2003 or do a Migration to my new server.
Posted on 2006-03-22
I have a Windows 2000 SP4 DC with Exchange 5.5. We just bought a new server running Windows 2003 w/Exchange 2003 software.
Sould I upgrade my server to Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 or just to a migration from the 2000 DC/Exchange 5.5 to the new 2003 DC?
The 2000 DC is just used for AD, DHCP, Email and file shares. We have about 100 user using the Windows 2000 DC.
We need to return the old 2000 DC to the leasing company. This is why we bought the new server.
I if I do upgrade my 2000DC/Exchange 5.5 to 2003 How can we then do a migration from the old server to the new server?
We would like to be able to use the same domain name on the Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 DC.
I have 2 days to complete this upgrade.
Thanks in advance.
