exchange 2007 migration

Dear experts,

Im in the process to migrate mail0 exchange 2007 server with the next rules:

Mailbox
Hub
Client Access

To a new box .

My question its , witch it will be the best way to do it, like create a new server mail1 ?
Or just copy actually config and data server to the new box? (not same hardware)

For your information, mail0 its in production , has 40 gb of mailboxes and we are speaking about something like 100 users.

We use another box for edge rule

Please advice, all good ideas in order to do it simply and fast are well come

Thanks in advance

HI,
it is a good idea to have two servers with edge serving running on seperate hardware .
You are migrating from exchange 200X to 2007.You need to join exchange 2007 (installed on a seperate hardware)to the existing exchange 2003/2000 site and move mailboxes,public folders,owa,oab and other stuff.

Yes, the easiest method would be to build a new server and move your mailboxes, this will allow you to configure everything move a test mailbox or two and validate funcationality.
Once tested you can complete you move and migrate what you need and decom the old server if that is the plan.

old and new server runs unther exchange 2007

So
If I migrate user after testing mailbox server , once its done , what about hub and client access rules ??
1 : all outlook 2003 clients have mail0 as server , should I go one by one all pcs to change mailbox server path ?

2 : how should I proceed to migrate hub and client access ??

Please advice

1 : all outlook 2003 clients have mail0 as server , should I go one by one all pcs to change mailbox server path ?
A.No the outlook needs to be closed and opened again thats all.The mailbox server will be changed automatically no need to visit individual machines
2 : how should I proceed to migrate hub and client access ??
A. you have to configure these roles seperately either on the same machine or seperate hardware.

you can install Hub and CAS on both servers.

Outlook is smart enought the the users will know they have been move as along as the old server is still online.  Move the mailboxes leave old server running for a few days then you can decom once you move any roles hosted

are you getting rid of the Mail0 server?
Was this a temp server?

You  can run both servers as CAS/Hub etc...

Then you could redundant hub and you could NLB you CAS etc....
