Exchange Server 2007, Migration to another Exchange 2007 box

I currenlty run an Exchange Server 2007, the physical server is not that great at the moment and I am running out of disk space. So I am thinking about creating another Exchange server 2007 server as a virtual machine and migrating all my users.

However my current Exchange server is behind is updates and rollups. I don't want to run these currently due to limited disk space. Hence a new server.

Would both servers require that they are both updated to Rollup 10 etc or can they be in different states?

They don't need to be on rollup 10 but is recommended.  As long as both servers are on the same build, you should be okay.

I wouldn't recommend migrating to a server that is not updated to at least the current version its running on.  I would update it to equal or higher before migration.  Get all your updates on the new server then migrate it over :)

You can migrate from an older version of Exchange 2007 to a newer version.
Bring the new server fully up to date with Service Pack 3 Rollup 11. However once you have it in place, don't do any management from the old server - that is where the problems can start.
