Move Exchange 2010 to new server

I had some problems with Exchange 2010 not being able to open the EMC nor the Powershell. After 3 or 4 hours on the phone to Microsoft they have said that I need to disconnect the exchange server and reconnect it to the domain. So I figure it may be easier just to move the Exchange server to a new Virtual Server.

Does anyone have any tips advice.

The existing exchange is a physical box?

No, the existing exchange was a Virtual Domain Controller which I will need to remove, but for the moment I was wanting to create a new user mailbox but cant, which was my first problem. So now I am thinking of a new Virtual Exchange server, maybe even Exchange 2013.

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

Thanks Netcmh, although the exchange server is in a HyperV environment and not VMWare.
The Exchange server is also a Virtual Server. I am just wanting to copy the exchange component though and not the entire server as the server is broekn because of an Active directory issue (apparently0

I would say it shouldnt be that big an issue .... you can simply check for a Exchange 2007->Exchange2010 migration and make sure you take care of all the points list once done simply stop all Exchange Services on the Old server for a week and ensure no user or relay is affected

1. Mailbox Migration
2. PF replication
3. OAB changed to new server
4. Send connector pointing to new server (Also any Firewall changes)
5. Any DL expansion server to new
6. Relay should be through new server
7. Can run EXBPA to check for any potential issues it catches
8. www.exrca.com -> to check for Mailflow and Autodiscover

My only concern is the original problem with the EMC not opening sounds like the Exchange server has a broken Active Directory connection so Im not sure how some of the commands in your helpful link will go.

Just to give you a breif idea of what Im up against, I just tried downloading a 3 rd party Exchange Management software package to see if that could help me complete some basic EMC tasks, and when I tried using the 3rd party software it couldnt see the exchange server.It would install as a menu in Active directory, but no simple tasks like create a mailbox wouldnt work.

EMC not opening depends on the VirtualDirectories so we can have a check if not we will to work that way then
