Upgrading from 2000 to 2003 on a new server
Posted on 2007-04-06
I am currently running Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2000 box (We will call this OLDSERVER1). This box is going to be retired. I am installing a new box with Windows 2003 and Exhchange 2003 (We will call this NEWSERVER1). My plan is to add the 2003 box, install Exchange 2003 on NEWSERVER1, migrate the mailboxes from OLDSERVER1 to NEWSERVER1 and then uninstall the OLDSERVER1 from the network. I have three questions:
1. Are their any good articles out there for doing this. I have done this before, but it was a while ago.
2. My client computers are running outlook. Each one of them is using the MS Exchange service and are pointing to OLDSERVER1. How can I make them point to NEWSERVER1without having to go around and reconfigure each workstation.
3. I remember reading that you their were certain Public Mailboxes that you do not move. Is this correct?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
