Migrating to Exchange 2003 from 2000 (not upgrading!)
Posted on 2006-06-14
Ok I want to double check on a few things as I want this to go quick and smoothly. I have only 20 users and most mail is in pst files so not too much data. I have 3 Windows 2000 servers and 1 offline windows 2003 server. I have exchange 2000 running and want to migrate everything from exchange 2000 over to the windows 2003 server running exchange 2003. I have run adprep /forestprep on the windows 2000 server and adprep /domainprep. I haven't installed exchange 2003 on the windows 2003 server yet or dns (the windows 2000 server with exchange is also the dns server) and I haven't run dcpromo on the exchange 2003 server. What are the next steps to ensure a smooth migration?
