We are trying to come up with the best way to migrate from Exchange 5.5 to 2003. Currently our Exchange 5.5 serve is in an NT 4.0 domain. It has a site name of Corp-HQ_KC. Want to move all mailboxes, public folders, distribution lists etc. to a new Exchange 2003 server in a Native Active Directory Domain. The Exchange 2003 server will not be (can't be) in the same Corp-HQ_KC site. What is everyone's suggestions on the easiest way to perform this migration. My team has now been arguing the best way for 5 months and I want to choose one method and move forward with it. Please help!

Hi,

Rename the display name of the sitename and then install Exchange 2003 into the renamed site (You can rename the display name in 5.5 without problems - do however always perform a backup before doing anything)

I am migrating from 5.5 to 2003 also and was wondering if I should change the sitename now on the 5.5 server, or if I can just rename it on the new Exchange 2003 server after migration?
