Upgrading Exchange and or the server
Posted on 2012-03-13
I'm looking for some general advise,
I have a customer with one server running MS SBS 2003, it has exchange V6.5 (build 7638.2 SP2), the server itself is a Proliant DL380 G5 with a 4 disk raid and Xeon CPU with 4Gb RAM.
The server is only really used for DC and Exchange as all company files and folders are kept on seperate network storage. 20 Users.
They would like to go to Exchange 2010, my question is in seperate parts,
1. can you just upgrade exchange 2003 to 2010 within an SBS enviroment?
2. would it be easier to just replace the server with a new SBS 2011 machine and OS?
3. can you just put a new exchange server on the network and migrate just the exchange from the old machine to the new?
