Hello,

I am basically starting my domain fresh with all new servers.  Instead of joining the existing servers, I would like to export/import both the Exchange & AD databases from the "old" version of the domain to the new.

Please advise.

Have a great day,

Don

I agree with Muhammad. If you want to start fresh, start completely fresh. OR get new servers, join to domain, move exchange, roles and shares over, demote old servers.
Plenty of help articles on the web for this.
