Can i run sharepoint 2007 and sharepoint 2010 in the same network

Hi folks

We have a fairly basic sharepoint 2007 installation, we have a few document libraries and some lists and other bits.

We want to move to sharepoint 2010 but we are not too bothered about upgrading, as it would not take us too replicate the data on the new 2010 site.

What I wondering is can we just install 2010 now on the same network and have a different URL for accessing it internally and then just set it up so it is a replica of the 2007 one. Then turn off old one and tell the staff there is a new address.

Do we need to do anything to AD? will it affect AD

Are we better to upgrade (2007 box is 32bit)

any help would be great.

You can do this. What I would recommend

Once you have your new 2010 installation up.

follow this

I have found this process to be rather robust. It will take all the security setting with it to.
Yes, you can run both SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 on the same network. There will be no impact to Active Directory.

It sounds like you will need new hardware anyway, as your 2007 server is 32-bit, and SharePoint 2010 requires 64-bit.
