Installing Exchange 2003 on a member server, questions.
Posted on 2007-11-28
I have a few questions about installing exchange 2003 on windows server 2003 standard R2. First, We have a client with an existing exchange 2003 server installed on a 2k3 standard server acting as a domain controller. We would like to install exchange 2003 on a new 2k3 standard server. The client has backed up all the exchange data via ntbackup. Can we install exchange on the new server, and give it the same IP address and name as the old server, restore the data via ntbackup, and have everything work without the outlook clients breaking?
Second, exchange 2003 requires active directory to be installed. If we wanted to install exchange 2003 on a member server, how do we install active directory on the member server without making it a DC?
Thanks for the help.
