Upgrade 5.5/200 AD to co Exist
Posted on 2007-03-23
OK this is a good one, im looking for opinions on what others would do in this scenario.
I have 2 networks that at the moment are not connected but are in the same building. One is an old 2000 AD with Exch 5.5 running on it. The other is a new 2003 AD with exhcange 2003 and all is well. Thing is i know what to share information between these two networks both email and data shares. I want to share outlook taks between these networks etc etc.
Now i will be upgrading the 2000/Exch 5.5 domains to 2003 AD/Exch 2003/2007 but it would be how best to organise the internetowrk communication, just wondering has anyone completed something similar.
Also on old 2000 domain the local domain name i wish to change this time around but i would hope not to have go around all the pc's take them off the old domain and put them onto the new domain is this possible?
Or would i be better starting from scratch.
