I currently have a Server 2008 Std Domain with another Server 2003 with Exchange 2003.   I am going to replace the Server 2003 with new hardware and Server 2008 R2 with Exchange 2010.  

What is proper way to move exchange 2003 to a new server running exchange 2010?  My intentions is to add the new server as a member server.  Also the old server was being used to replicate the Server 2008 std already in place.

Use the Exchange Server Deployment Assistant from Microsoft:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/jj657516.aspx

It will generate customized documentation for you to upgrade from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010.
