We are about to migrate from one box that is running NT and 5.5 to a new box running Windows 2003 Server.  Does anyone know of a good guide to help us through this procedure?

We have to setup AD on the new box before anything anyways correct?  5.5 didnt actually work with AD did it?

None of these say....

But, do I just build the new 2003 server and make it DC and install exchange and all of that on there and THEN migrate the 5.5 stuff with the AD connector?

Most of what I am reading doesnt show anything about implementing a new server.  It talks about upgrading from 5.5.

I am putting in a new server in a 5.5 environment and taking out the 5.5

It doesn't look like this guide applies..

if you an avoid it i would say dont put AD and exchange on same box.

hmmm

I beleve all you need to do is
install server 2003 AD server/servers
Install server 2003 with Exchange 2003
Install AD connector on exchange 2003 server
Join it to the 5.5 org
Use the move mailbox wizard to move boxes to new server
then remove the old server

I may be missing something, lets see what other ppl think
