Migrating to Windows 2008 - 5.Aug.2014 5:24:32 AM

I currently have a network with 1 Exchange 2007 Server running Windows 2003 (50 mailboxes) and a file server running Server 2003. I have purchased a new high spec server and I am looking to migrate the exchange server to the new server so it is running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008.
I have several questions:-
What is the best way to migrate all the settings, terminal services, active directory, dns etc?
What is the best way to migrate the Mailboxes with minimal down time?

Many thanks

Our company had a similar situation migrating from Exchange 2003 to 2013. It was a cross forest migration with about 2k mailboxes. Delegates, Distribution Lists and PF's were very important for day-to-day activities. We eventually ended up going with a third party tool (Priasoft). Their Migration Suite allowed us to migrate all users and had an option where we could decide who goes first (VIP). We chose to migrate data only from the past 30 days to the target environment. Getting everyone over to the other side in a timely matter allowed everyone to access all Outlook Clients as needed. While 'backfilling' the rest of the data (anything over 30 days). It was a great feature.

Not to mention having the dry run allowed us to expose issues with a few dozen mailboxes that were corrupted before we started the production migration. It gave us an exact schedule on how long the migration would take. Saved us a huge headache. Not sure if your project has started yet, http://www.priasoft.com/

Also looks like they are running a special for those who want to move from 2003.
