I need to do a migration from our Server 2003 Standard (SP2) / Exchange 2003 Standard (SP2) to a new Server 2008 R2 (SP1) / Exchange 2010 Standard box.
I've got the 2k8 R2 server up-to-date with Online Updates, but haven't installed Exchange 2010 yet as I do know really know where to go from here.
A lot of what I've read so far conflicts in the order of things to do...
So far, I have:
(on the 2k8 box)
1. Installed .Net Framework 3.5 sp1 and the default IIS config.
2. Used the powershell to run
Add-WindowsFeature NET-Framework,RSAT-ADDS,Web-Server,Web-Basic-Auth,Web-Windows-Auth,Web-Metabase,Web-Net-Ext,Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console,WAS-Process-Model,RSAT-Web-Server,Web-ISAPI-Ext,Web-Digest-Auth,Web-Dyn-Compression,NET-HTTP-Activation,Web-Asp-Net,Web-Client-Auth,Web-Dir-Browsing,Web-Http-Errors,Web-Http-Logging,Web-Http-Redirect,Web-Http-Tracing,Web-ISAPI-Filter,Web-Request-Monitor,Web-Static-Content,Web-WMI,RPC-Over-HTTP-Proxy -Restart
(on the 2k3 box)
1. changed the Exchange instance to "Native Mode"
2. raised the AD Forest to 2003
Where to from here?
For information's sake, our Exchange 2003 server is Public facing. Is the ONLY Exchange server and is (obviously) the current Domain parent for our internet domain.
I want the new Exchange server to be the same as the old so I can get rid of the old. They can coexist if need be, but I need to note that the 2003 box is above the 75GB store limit and keeps dismounting.
