I wanted to ask some of you what your thoughts were on the best method to upgrade to Exchange 2013.

Currently we run a 2003 Domain on one box and 2003 Exchange on a second box.

We want to upgrade to Server 2012 Domain and 2010 Exchange.

What is the best method to do this and eliminate downtime for the users?

Please confirm if this is the best approach.

1) Buy a new box and install Server 2012 and 2012 Exchange
2) Migrate mailboxes over to Exchange 2012.
3) Decommission the 2003 Exchange Server
4) Install Server 2010 on old Exchange Server Box and make new domain controller
5) Demote old 2003 domain controller

Please advise if this is the right approach.

If you suggest a better method, please advise.

Thanks in advance.
