5.5 to 2000 upgrade advice - 17.Apr.2003 7:40:00 PM

I am now being forced to upgrade our network to W2K. To this point I have not seen a compelling reason to do so but the powers that be want some functionality that is built into E2k. Although I have many problems that I'm facing, currently I'm only concerned with the Exchange issues. Here is my scenario.

Current network
NT4 Domain w/3 domain controllers
Exchange 5.5 SP4 running on NT4 SP6
Exchange box is a BDC
ALL DOMAIN CONTROLLERS HAVE THE UNDERSCORE IN THEIR NAME

Keeping in mind that the ultimate goal is to upgrade to a W2K domain with E2K, what is the easiest path to take to get Exchange 5.5 running on another machine and migrate all mailboxes/public folders leaving the upgrade path to E2K open? I also need to change the account that Exchange services are using.

My thoughts are..
Build new W2K machine and install Exchange 5.5 with a new Organization

Migrate all mail/public folders to the new machine

Upgrade the domain to W2k and install the ADC for Exchange

Get AD working correctly and the domain in native mode

Upgrade 5.5 to 2000

Am I totally lost? Anyone have any comments?

Larry
