I am performing a migration from Server 2000 (running Exchange 2000 standard) to a Small Business Server 2003 (with exchange 2003).

One of the first steps is to export the Administrator account.

I've googled around a bit and have found nothing concrete.  

Could anyone provide a step by step account of how to achive this?

Many thanks

    Where did you get that one of the first steps is to export the Administrator Account?  While that's basically true... it would seem to me that whatever source gave you that information, it should also have given you the "how-to".

    Providing you with just the steps to Export the Administrator account is probably not a good idea since it ignores the fact that there are a number of planning steps that must go into a migration before you actually migrate.  I would be concerned that if you've gotten to the point of "exporting the administrator account" without knowing how, then you most likely haven't completed the planning process.

    Please review:

    This document will guide you in your migration.  You should completely read it and use the worksheets at the end to assist you in the migration.

    You're kind of right.  I've already done the "preparation" in terms of shares, permissions, printers, yadda, yadda, but there were no "step-by-step" guides in the information I obtained.  I don't have a test environment or the resoources to create a new directory and just import the mail accounts, so I'm having to make do with the method I'm choosing.  Thanks for the link though.  It's what I needed.
