csda -> Best way to migrate from Exch5.5 on NT4 to Exch2K3 on WS2K3 on the same hardware (18.Aug.2003 4:02:00 AM)

Is there any idea on how to migrate from Exch5.5 / NT4 to Exch2003 / WS2003 on the same hardware?

The only way I see it is to:
- build a temp Exch2003/WS2003 server;
- migrate from Exch5.5 / NT4;
- rebuild the original server box as WS2K3 DC and install Exch2K3
- migrate Exch server back to the original location.

Any other suggestions?
Thanks to all.

Hi,
I did the following :
1. Build a new domain under Win2003 - DC .
2. Build a new exchange 2003 server within the new domain.
3. trust nt4<>2003 DC
4. import the mailboxes from the exchange 5.5 to the exchange 2003.
5. import users/computers from the old domain into the new 2003 DC .

It's working fine -)

Email me if you need any help about it, i have step-by-step guide for the NT4<>2003 DC (not from Microsoft).
