Please Help! e5.5 to e2k upgrade - 4.Apr.2002 4:28:00 PM

Hi friends,

Here is the upgrade Scenario,

1.There is a Windows NT 4.0 domain called MYCOMPANY
2.There is only one PDC called MYPDC
3.There is one exchange site called SITE1 containing exchange 5.5 server.
4.There are no BDCs

The goal is to get to the following configuration
1.Windows 2000 Server as Domain Controller with Active Directory (call this server as COMPANYADS)
2.The exchange 5.5 server needs to be upgraded to Exchange Server 2000,( users need to be migrated from the existing MYCOMPANY domain.)the old NT/e5.5 server will be retired.

Constraints:
1.The new Windows 2000 clean install and users need to be migrated from the existing MYCOMPANY domain.
2.All the exchange server mail accounts should be preserved
3.There should be minimum downtime.

Any ideas on the best sequence from experts in forum

1. Install win2k server and make it a member of the domain.
2. Dcpromo it.
3. Demote your current PDC to a BDC.
4. After the domain controllers have replicated you can remove the NT4 BDC if you would like.
5. Next install E2k into the 5.5 site and create an Active Directory Connector (ADC) from AD to the 5.5 server.
6. Move the mailboxes and public folders from 5.5 to e2k server.
7. Remove the 5.5 server.
