In about a week I plan to migrate exchange 2007 to 2010. I am wondering if anyone has a best practice or nicely written procedure to do this to? I intend to migrate to a whole new server. The original server and the new one will be VM's running under ESX on the same physical host.
What I would rather do is a totally new install, from scratch. What my concern would be is overlooking something like distribution groups etc.
I am going to export all the existing mailboxes to PST files and import them back after the server comes online.
Is there an easier way to do this or is this the best practice?
