I have a win 2003 server with Exchange 2003 and I want to move it to a new 2003 server. The new server has a different name and cannot be changed. Here is what I found on the MS support site:

"If you are moving an existing Exchange Server 2003 to new hardware and want to have a different server name, perform a Move Mailbox operation to move the mailboxes and then rebuild the Exchange server."

How do I rebuild? I could not find instructions on how to do this. Do I need to install Exchange on the new server first before I move the mailboxes?
