Hi there,

This is easy to do.  You need to install the new server and create a fresh install of Exchange 2007.  Then you need to migrate the mailstore database using the following guide:

during the install of exchange on new server do i need to shutdown the prvious server on which exchange is already installed.

and once we moved the datbase from old to new server and after this if we removed the old exchange will it effect active directory users.

my concern is specilally with domain user accounts.

i dont want that once you removed the old exchange it will delete the user acounts as well from the domain controller.

OK - are you moving Exchange to a new server with better hardware etc?  E.g. is that the reason for the move?  If you want to move Exchange and keep the same server name you can follow the Microsoft guide below which is excellent:

it's too easy
  1. install a new exchange server with different name
  2. move all mailboxes to the new server
  3. modify send connector to include the new server as the source server
  4. modify  the OAB generator server to be the new  exchange server

then use add/remove programs to uninstall the old exchange server, this will not affect your users at all in active directory

I agree with msabry06 - my post at http:#30913853 says the same thing and provides a guide.  Apologies for not answering the question "i dont want that once you removed the old exchange it will delete the user acounts as well from the domain controller.".
