hi guys,

I have a 2000 server, running as a DC, DNS, Exchange 2000 mail server and a File server.

Recently just get a new 2003 server.  I am thinking of moving the Exchange 2k mail service out, and
let this new server run as new server, of course, I want to reduce the pain and disturbance to the minimum
as possible?

Any one did that before?

the best way would be to install exchange 2003 in the same ORG and then replicate over the system folders and public folders to the new server
move the mailboxes over to the new server
test mail flow
change routing master to new server
change RUS server to new exchange server
change OAB server to new server
de-commision the old server
