This is a scenario

Company ABC has 2 domain controllers

First DC: Windows 2000 Server has 40 users account

Second DC: Windows 2003 Server + Exchange 2003, has 40 users account

All 80 users are using mail by Exchange 2003, on second DC.


Company ABC wants to deploy new Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010, they want all users use Exchange 2010 from now on. All the users from first DC will be moved to second DC.

I would like to ask all experts give me best detail solutions for this scenario. Thank you very much.

First you need to upgrade all DC's to 2003 minimum and upgrade the functional level also to 2003 at least. Then you need to implement a transition or migration plan. Use Exchange 2010 deployment assistant tool, this will help to answer most of your queries with all necessary steps.
