Hi all,
I'm about to embark on a quest to move our Exchange 2003 server to a new box.

The exsisitng exchange is sharing a server with DC/DCHP/DNS roles.  I only wish to move the Exchange role to the new server and keep the server name on the old box.

What is the best way to achieve this with minium risk and down time for the users.

Also whats the best way to point all the users to the new box about 50 in total after the move?

Thanks in advance for any guidence and I hope I have provided all the information needed.
