deyster -> Some questions about migrating from 5.5 to 2003 (3.Jun.2004 7:40:00 PM)

I have some questions about a few things during a migration from 5.5 to 2003.

1. How is OWA going to be effected? For example, will I need to have it running on both 5.5 and 2003 so users on the different systems can connect? Or, can users on 2003 connect to a 5.5 server running OWA? I do plan to have a FE server for 2003.

2. Pretty much the same question for internet email. Will I need to have a connector for the users on the 2003 system, or can the use the internet mail connector I already have on the 5.5 system? Also, when I bring the FE server up, can I create an IMC on that and use it for users on both systems?

3. How much power does a Front End server really need? We do have a number of users (~100) that use OWA. Would a PIII 733 with ~900 megs of RAM be able to handle the requests? Or should I go higher?

TIA for your help.

Dan
