Moving Exchange Server
Posted on 2006-06-08
On my network, we have one server that basically does everything. It is a Win2003 SBS server that is our Domain Controller, Exchange 2003 (Stand. Ed.) server, File and Print Server, etc... We finally have the money to buy some more servers to disperse some of the roles that this server holds. I plan on building a second domain controller and transferring one of the FSMO roles (Infrastructure Master) to this.
We will be purchasing a server which will act as the new Exchange 2003 server (as well as file server). What steps are involved to move all of the mailboxes to this new server? Once we migrate to this new server, we will be removing Exchange from the server it is on now. We do not really want to do a Front End/Backend setup either. I assume I will need to Exmerge. Please guide me through the steps that need to be taken.
