Failing Hardware 2003 Exchange Backend - 7.Apr.2011 2:56:02 PM

We have a failing Exchange 2003 Server. It needs to be rebuilt. I was wondering what might be the safest and have the least impact on end users. Disasterrecovery looks like it might be the best option, but I was pondering about adding a secondary server, moving the mailboxes, transfering the OAB role, then taking the first server offline and rebuilding. I'm afraid all my Outlook users would need to change the exchange server name and that impacts 100s of users. Any suggestions. This is a front-end back-end setup.

Thanks in Advance.

Your plan is fine.  Users will not have to change the Exchange server name in their Outlook profiles as long as both servers are running when they launch Outlook the first time after you migrate their mailbox.
