We have a Cisco Pix 515e firewall that has a web server/exchange 2000 (same server) on the dmz.  We also have the internal network that is on a seperate subnet and different domain name.   We would like to add a new exchange 2003 to the internal network and migrate mailboxes over to the exchange 2003 and then turn off exchange on the dmz.   The dmz is a different subnet and a different domain name from the internal network.  For example, the dmz is dmzXX.com and the internal is xx.com.   Can this be done?

Yes u can do it , install the new excahge server in internal domain , then use Exmerge tool to move the mailboxes to the new servers.

See the below articles on technet .

Thanks for your quick response.   I am just wondering when I go to install Exchange 2003 on the internal network, will it see or join the Exchange 2000 on the DMZ or will it be the first Exchange server in the internal domain?  

Also, do you happen to know what obvious changes will need to be made to the firewall?

Once the mailboxes are moved, what is involved with taking exchange 2000 off of the webserver and the dmz?

Considering what you have to do to a firewall to get Exchange to go through, I would seriously consider putting a temporary machine in the DMZ to take on the web duties and moving the Exchange server inside. Otherwise you are turning the firewall in to swiss cheese to get it to work properly.

There is a posting on my blog where I have outlined the ports required.
