Server Migration

Currently I have 2 windows 2003 standard servers.  One runs our file / sql server and one runs our exchange 2003 server.
I am swaping them over to two new Dell servers.  I would like to make this a seamless process.  I had a server migration go at a different job site and the corp IT guys used a cool program that migrated the users profile in its FULL extent.  Even there backround migrated and the password didnt change.

how did they do that?

For moving Exchange to a new server you may want to take a look at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997176.aspx.  It works really well.

Dont worry Deatherage. For exchange migration please follow the link below which is a swing migration prepared by one of our exchange experts sembee.

And for the oher file server all you need to do is to install the windows 2003 server in the new machine and then if you have have any backups for the file sever you can use that to restore from the tapes which is one way of doing if not you can also think of using this software robocopy or xcopy which copies the files as well as the shares permission.
