hello,

we would like to give a big breath to a customer' server in moving Exchange server to another one.

But actually, Exchange is depending of the SBS 2011, so here are my questions :
> is it possible to move it to another Windows server ? Does SBS licensing allow that ?

> if yes, is it possible to temporarily create a second Exchange server, make replication and mailbox moving to the new one, and finally turn off old exch. server ?

thanks in a lot in advance for your help,

regards,

Seb
