I have agreed to help my old company (Comp1) move offices, they are merging with another company (Comp2). Up until now they had told me that the two windows machines in the Comp2 would be discarded and all users switched to the Macs in Comp1.
However, while visiting them today, they casually mentioned that they have a server sitting in another room. On investigation it is running Windows SBS 2000, and MS Exchange. It also appears to be a 'master domain controller' although I have only a basic knowledge of what this means.
I would like to transfer all users over to the Macs, running OSX 10.3 with a server on OSX Server 10.3, and set that up as the Open Directory Master, but am not sure what to do about the Exchange Server. Comp1 does not have an internal mail server, downloading all mail to individual client machines from the ISP. If necessary could I just use the Windows server for Exchange, but remove the Directory setup? I'm concerned that this may mess up the Exchange settings...
Does anyone have advice (apart from 'walk away!' which isn't really an option at this stage), or pointers to resources that can help to plan what to do?
