We are trying to migrate an old host running server 2003 with exchange 2003 into a server 2012 environment. It is also the primary domain controller, file server, and is running active directory.
We setup 2 new blade servers with vmware and the goal is to migrate this old server into a 2012 server vm with exchange 2013 (and as the new PDC) so we can shut the old host down. We've been looking at different forums and step-by-step guides but haven't found a clear way to migrate from a server that is both the PDC and running exchange 2003 to a new PDC running exchange 2013.
We already converted our old terminal servers (2) into vms and have them running on the new hosts but still as 2003 servers.
We would like to complete this over the next two days, or at least upgrade the terminal servers to 2012 but I don't think that will work in a 2003 level domain with exchange 2003. Looking for all the help we can get!
