*lesson on putting a new exchange 2010 server in a 2003 domain replacing old 2003 exchange

Hi All, I have two clients that I am upgrading (replacing) their exchange 2003 servers with exchange 2010. Both new hardware and server 2008 r2 64 of course.

Both have 2003 based AD networks, SP2 , so should be good. One has exchange 2003 standard, the other 2003 enterprise, although I do not think that matters but just wanted to throw that out.  I have worked with exchange 2007 so I know my way around the exchange 2003/2007 diffferences.

I have been reading, researching, reading some more, and all I have so far is a bunch of stuff to read and a seemingly endless amount of hotfixes that MS has me downloading that I am not sure we even really need.

So, I am looking for some tips on how to do this, a cookbook approach. Get it done.  There are not many requirements for the new server, other than moving the mailboxes and supporting OWA (with a 3rd party SSL cert that we already have). I know how to do everything else like the DNS and MX changes if needed.

Thanks anyone,
ClassANets
