Exchange 2003 Server Migration
Posted on 2006-07-07
I currently have an Exchange 2003 Server Std running and the box that it is on needs to be replaced. I have ordered a new one to migrate the mail store to. The configuration on the new server will have the same OS (2003 Svr Std Ed SP1) and the same version of Exchange (2003 Std Ed SP1). What is the best way to migrate the mail store over to the new server and if at all possible, automatically point the clients to use the new server. We have about 100 - 125 clients in 9 offices using this Exchange box, so I was hoping to avoid touching each Outlook Configuration to point to the new server.
I am planning on performing this install and migration this month, most likely in the next two weeks.
Thanks in advance.
