Please check the following Microsoft link:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124350.aspx

But please check the few couple of sentences in the first paragraph:

You can't perform an in-place upgrade from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010. However, you can install an Exchange 2010 server into the existing Exchange organization and then move resources, such as mailboxes, public folders, and connectors to Exchange 2010

Check this cool Exchange Deployment Assistant from Microsoft....

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exdeploy2010/default.aspx#Home 

It will help you with proper instructions for upgrading to Exchange 2010 with following environment;

1. Pure Exchange 2003
2. Pure Exchange 2007
3. Exchange 2003 & 2007

Let me know if that helps.... :-)

What guide are you looking for when you have the Exchange deployment assistant... It is much more easier to follow than guides...

Every link that someone has offered you has a guide of some kind. I'm not sure what other information any of us could offer if these aren't enough. The Exchange deployment assistant gives you step-by-step instructions once you input the initial information.

Well, bravo to Zingab for not even bothering to share with others the solution he found (by the way, the link is http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000236.htm, and, all things considered, it is a very detailed walk-through with screenshots and everything) and without giving any credit to anyone who tried to help him without going so far as logging into his network and doing the upgrade for him.

Regardless of whether you are a full-time IT administrator or not, if you are using this forum you should give credit where credit is do and participate in a meaningful way to help others. The information that you found could be very helpful to others who are in a similar situation to yours.

You can choose to reply or not but my point is that you should at least be respectful to other people. Everyone who answered tried to give you information and you flat out acted like they weren't even trying. I don't care about points.

Also, you did not provide helpful information about the solution that you found which would have been helpful to others. I think that this question is something that a lot of people will face and I think all the links that everyone here provided would be useful to others seeking the same knowledge.

The fact that you're now attempting to delete this question and thereby remove all the useful information associated with it proves that you are actually a detriment to this community, not an asset.

Zingab, you might also consider revising your requests to let people know that you are not an IT Administrator and that you are looking for instructions that even an non IT person could use.

One final comment. Zingab, you really shouldn't delete this question. The link you posted is actually helpful. If you don't want to award the points to anyone you should award them to yourself on your comment. That way the reference and link to the KB will remain available for others looking for the same information.

modus_operandi,

Does "auto-close" mean that the question will be removed and made inaccessible? It would be nice to reference the KB's that are listed on this question so that other people looking for the same answer can find it.
