Exchange 2003 Server replacement
Posted on 2010-11-09
We have a Server 2003 Standard with Exchange 2003. Everything is working well except for one major flaw... there is no disk space left.
I have aquired a nice IBM x3650 server and have installed 3x 300GB SAS hard drives RAID5.
I have embedded the IBM RaidServ SAS controller drivers into the OS install and I'm up to configuring the OS and then Exchange.
Do I need to do anything with the old server (still online and in use) before I do the OS install on the new server?
What is the best method to move data (and maybe the configuration) from the old server to the new server? Both are running exactly the same OS, Exchange and SP's.
