I am in the process of moving our Exchange server to new hardware as part of a planned upgrade and also as part of our disaster recovery testing.

I am going to be using the same server name so am following the KB article 297289 (How to move Exchange 2000 to new hardware and keep the same server name).

Is there a way of exporting and then importing the config and settings from the server to save me having to go through and open up each tab to see what it says.

For example I am thinking along the lines of:

Sender Filtering
Virtual server settings (Delivery settings, email limits/sizes)
Recipient policies

etc.

I have tried using the Best Practices Analyser but it doesn't seem to give me exactly what I need, unless I am not doing it right.

thanks.

All these setttings are in Active Directory. So when you run disasterrecovery switch, everything is pulled from AD. So you dont need to export any settings. However, some things like the SSL certificate in IIS is machine specific, so you will need to export it and import it into new machine.
