I currently have a 2003 Active Directory forest that consists of 5 2003 Exchange Enterprise servers. We have acquired a new site that has a 2000 Exchange server. All sites are connected via WAN. I need to create a new 2003 Exchange Enterprise server and drop it at their site.
What is the best method of doing this? Can I simply make the new Exchange server a Domain Controller and GC and then just move mailboxes from one to other? Any boobytraps?
