i have two servers
- Win2003 Server (as the Primary DC with AD-integrated DNS) and a
- Latest Exchange Server 2007. (all roles setup in a single box like Mailbox, CAS, HubTransport roles - no unified or spam roles needed/defined)
Question is, these 2 servers are on unreliable old hardware. I want to move them to brand new Quad Core platforms. What is the best way to do this.? Microsoft sucks and their technet got millionpages linked on each page.
Could the procedure look something like this:
1 - Install Win2003 Server 64bit on both Machines (all updates/patches)
2- First machine - using DCpromo make this the primary DC and GC.
3- Add 20 users manually to the new AD
4- Create GPO's similar to the old GPO with home shares and other security policies applied.
5- Install exchange 2007 on the second Machine- again all roles combined.
6- testing communication between exchange and AD
7- well i am pretty sure this aint gonna work, so step7 would be getting drunk
all the experts out there - plz lemme know if i am missing any steps in between.
thank you !
