I'm getting ready to add a Windows 2008 (or 2003, depending on the answer) server to an existing Windows 2000 domain. The current domain is comprised of a single DC, with Exchange 2000 on it (not an SBS). The DC must be replaced. Installing the next version of Exchange will not be in the upgrade plan. My questions are:
- I was planning on removing Exchange from the current DC, then run through the steps here:
My main concern is Exchange - do I need to make any adjustments or do anything else to get Exchange out of the AD?
- Are there any issues that would make upgrading to a 2003 server a better bet? Going to 2008 isn't an absolute requirement.
