I have a server running Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000.  This server is also the DC of my domain.  I would like to migrate Windows 2000 domain to Windows 2003 domain in a new server.  And I also want to migrate that Exchange 2000 to Exchange 2003 onto that new server.  What is the best practice for this?  Please provide step-by-step guides.  Much thanks in advance...

The domain part is relatively simple,

Install the server, join the existing domain, then run forestprep and domainprep(1) to upgrade the domain to the new level, then run DCPROMO to make the new server a domain controller

I used this guide for moving from exchange 2000 to 2003

If you are intending to keep the old server, then it may be a good idea to not install exchange on a domain controller, depending on your environment.
