Guys, I have a Windows 2003 server running as DC and exchange 2003. I want to create a test environment of this server so I can test the upgrade process of Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 in our corporate location that is on a separate network completely.
I thought the best way to do this was create a VPN connection on the new 2003 server (server2) to connect to the production server (server1) after I replicate the AD to server 2 I was going to disconnect the VPN and never connect again.
Can someone point me in the right direction with step-by-step instructions to achieve creating this test environment?
