Moving Exchange 2003 to new hardware with Exchange 2007

Moving Exchange 2003 to new hardware with Exchange 2007

Current server is Windows 2003 DC with Exchange 2003 std - prod. env't 32bit

New additional server - will be Windows 2008 member server I am assuming, and I'd like to move the Exchange 2003 get rid of it, and Install Exchange 2007 on this 2008 Server which is also x64

So far, I have just installed Win2008 Server Std... have not done anything else yet.

no idea where to start... should I patch it all up first, .... join to domain,.....?

if someone can please provide me with some help, that would be great

well it is somehow a long process by I will try to highlight it here


1) Install Windows 2008 64 bits (done I see)
2) Patch it with the latest patches
3) Join to the domain
4) Install exchange 2007 on it
5) Move all mailboxes from 2003 to 2007 (using the move-mailbox cmdlet)
6) Move all public folder from 2003 to 2007
7) uninstall exchange 2003
