Hi all,
I have a question i would like to ask you all about a much needed upgrade to exchange server
standard to enterprise endition. However, currently its part of a windows 2000 domain where exchange server 2000 enterprise edition is installed. They talk to each by ADC i believe.
Do you think i will break anything if i just go ahead and upgrade the existing 2003 exchange server and then finish the migration?

The situation is that the public information store is at 74.5GB and they have done all the deleting they can do for the moment and new stuff is being filed daily.

It should not. But the first rule of migration or upgradtion is to have a backup ready if something goes wrong while migration/upgradtion.

In place upgrade of exchange 2003 standard to enterprise is a supported procedure and pretty straight forward, you should be fine.


Note that exchange server will need to be rebooted after the upgrade
