I am a freelance consultant for a 30 user law firm and need to migrate from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.
Current server is a Dell 2800, with Server 2003 Std and Exchange 2003 Enterprise. There are 3 mailbox stores. The total information store size is approximately 220GB. Machine is also the only DC.
I have been reading about Exchange 2010 requirements and migration scenarios. Can anyone direct me to a nuts and bolts guide so that I can determine if this is something I can handle? Firm cannot afford much downtime and I want to do right by them by doing some homework.
I know I need a new server and hardware. Am considering recommending virtualization as this firm has growing needs and is at a crossroads. Am new to virtualization so will post a separate question regarding this.
thanks in advance for any help.
