Replacing Exchange 2003 Front End server

Our Front End server died.  Although we have backups we want to take the opportunity to replace the hardware since this system had zero redundancy.  My question is, when installing Exhange on the new server which will have the same host name as the previous server, do I need to install it in Disaster Recovery mode.   Anything else I should look out for.

Thank you,

You either need to do it in DR mode or remove the server from ESM before you begin.

Key things to watch for is patching. If the original backend server went RTM, SP1, SP2 then you need to follow that path. Then patch the server with Exchange and Windows updates before you set it as as a frontend server. If the new FE is not the same or higher as the backend then OWA will not work.
