I found an article from one server to another but I am moving my Exchange 2003 server to another server with a different name. After backing up my info store I moved the actual store into place and started services. Doing this gives me an error when I go to OWA, "HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable" so how do I move the data over.

I guess I could just backup mail to a PST, and restore which wouldn't be too hard.

The best way to move to a new server is using the swing method:

Do these instructions also apply to Exchange 2003? What about these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;822945&Product=exch2003

I too am moving my single exchange server to a new piece of hardware and am wondering what the best approach is.

Edit: Also, does it matter that the old server is Windows 2003 Standard and the new one will be Windows 2003 Enterprise? Also, do I need to worry about applying SP1 to the new Exchange install before moving mailboxes? In the Microsoft method, there doesn't seem to be a way to apply SP1 before the import of the old data...does this matter? Thanks again.
