I have a server running Server 2003 and on it a virtual Server 2008.
The current 2003 is running exchange 03 and the exchange 03 needs to be moved over to the 08 (running exchange 08)
What is the recomended step by step for migrating Active Directory and Exchange from 03 to the virtual 08 without using virtual tools and no loss of data (mailboxes etc...)?
*does it matter at all that one machine is virtual for the migration?
*If so what steps would be diffrent if the two machines were both physical or the 03 was the virtual and the 08 was physical?
Once the migration is done what is the quicest and safest method for getting 08 to be the physical server (just image and install...)?
