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

Although it may sound good to 'start afresh', it's actually not such a good idea.

What is your motivation for this?

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.
