I want to do an Windows NT 4 migration to Windows 2003 Server, I got one Server actually that have the Domain, DNS and Exchange 5.5.

I want to migrate to Windows 2003 Server and Exchange as well 2003. But now I have two new Servers and I need to install the Windows 2003 Server and Exchange and everything, but I need to migrate the accounts and I mean everything from the Exchange 5.5 in the Windows NT4, I need to migrate the Domain and DNS and everything from the Windows NT4 Server. So All from One Server to two Servers.

I would like to know all the steps to accomplish this job and where to find all the info as possible, if possible a Manual to do this.

One thing I can reccomend is that you take it one step at a time and DO NOT get in a hurry.
Always make sure the previous migration step is complete and all is working before starting the next step. Always make sure that you have good backups and a rollback strategy.

Speed kills in migrations of this type.
As KCTS stated MS has documentation on all you want to do. Also search the MS Knowledge Base for articles on updating from Exchange 5.5 to 2003. This is well documented.

Just my 2 cents worth.
