Hello.

I am new to Exchange.

Currently with have one windows 2003 DC with Exchange 2003 SP2 running. The Dc is set to Windowss 2000 domain functionality.

I have been given the task to upgrade the domain to 2008 and also move Exchange to 2010.

Now, I am thinking of doing a two step upgrade:

1) Upgrade Domain to 2008
2) Add a new Exchange 2010 box.

The way I would like to proceed is with the existing environment:

Part 1
1) Add a new Windows 2008 member server. Promote it to DC (Any issues here with AD 2003 and Exchange 2003?)
2) Raise AD functionality to Windows 2008 Forest - Will this cause any issues with the Exchange 2003 box (also the 2003 DC)?

Part 2
Once Ad is ready then I will:
1) Add 1 new 2008 member box where Exchange 2010 will be installed. Any potential issues here?

Thanks

Louis

No, although there is a fix for the inetOrgPerson class (see KB 325379)

2) Raise AD functionality to Windows 2008 Forest - Will this cause any issues with the Exchange 2003 box (also the 2003 DC)?
No, we have a Win 2008 domain with a mixture of Exch 2003 and 2007 in it.

3) Add 1 new 2008 member box. Any issues here?
No, should be just fine.
