Upgrade from exch 5.5 to 2003
Posted on 2006-06-27
I have a single site single domain running exchange server 5.5 SP4 on a windows 2000 SP4 server.
I need to make the same server(hardware) into a windows/exch server 2003 environment.
I have 3 other DCs that are running 2003 server on the same domain.
Because of previous OS issues with the 2000 server, I would like to do a clean 2003 server install on a new HD.
I do have a few books on upgrading and took a short MS class so I have some idea of the differences b/n 5.5 and 2003 and how the upgrade works, but this is somewhat of a special case bc its a clean HD and OS install.
Can someone please recommend a procedure for this task? Personal experience in this situation would be great!
