I'd like any advice on moving exchange to a new server....
I have a 2003 windows standard edition server with exchange 2003. This is all this server does...email. Everything works great, but we are running low on disk space and we will be getting a new server in the next few weeks. The new server will be just hardware, no software (OS or exchange). My plan was to use the Windows Server 2003 license and exchange software that is currently on the old server. After the migration the old server will be demoted to a desktop computer for some user, and reformatted and loaded with XP. So i'm trying not to just 'throw away' a 2003 server license by not buying one with the new server, since after the migration the windows 2003 server edition license will NOT be used by the old server anymore.
1) I was wondering if i'm going to hit any walls trying to do this (since technically there will be two microsoft windows 2003 product keys on the same domain temporarily until i move the exchange data). *I thought i read with XP at least that two license's can't be on the same domain, which is perfectly understandable. Is this the same with server editions? If it is, how do you get around not 'throwing away' a license?
Thanks in advance.
