Move Exchange 2003 Server to another Org
Posted on 2009-05-02
I have been asked to migrate my users, comps and data to another domain.
Part of that is to migrate an Exchange server to a new Org and domain.
the Exchange server is also the only Domain Controller on site, so I woud have to DC promo it into another domain in the first place before working on the Exchange server.
I have suggested we buy another server, build from scratch and move the mail to the new server on the new org.
My boss is saying he wants to save money and does not believe we need to buy another server.
The project is one we have no time for and I will only get about half a day down time.
I am looking for advice on:
a) whether moving an exchange server from one domain and org to another domain and org is viable
b) is it a best practice to start from scratch
c) any other help and advice
