I currently have only 1 Exchange 2000 machine on the network.

We will be getting a new server with much more power and room and want to install Exchange 2003 on it. What is the best to install the new Server, copy all information (mailboxes, public folders etc...) to the new server then REMOVE the old one.

It doesn't have to have the same computer name. but I want it to be a seemless install and removal process so I don't get any complaints.

Hi. yOu have many options to your new HW.

1. You can install Windows Server 2003, then Install Exchange 2003 and use Migration Wizard to Copy the Mailboxes( If you want, you can use ADMT v2 to move the Accounts and Passwords from a existing DC) Take care, to use the Migration Wizard the Exchange Servers must be on Different Organizations (Can be in the same Forest, but must be on Different Exchange Organizations)

2. Another way (The easy for me) is to USE Exmerge to extract the Mailboxes to a PSTs files, then Merge the PST to the New Server.

3. In this Method you can Work whit the 2 Server at the same time, you must Install ADC, then run the Connection Aggretment Wizard. the Install the NEW Exchange 2003 on the Same Organization of the Exchange 2000, and move the Mailboxes.
