Hi all,

I have a customer who is upgrading their server infrastructure to new hardware. One of the servers is running Server2003 with Exchange 2003 and it is a DC.

I have found articles on how to 'move' the server to different hardware but this seems to be only for member servers.

What do I need to be aware of as I need the new server to have the same name, Exchange connectors etc. and still be a DC.

Help!

Cheers!

Use the DisasterRecovery switch as mentioned in below MS KB article:

How to move Exchange 2003 to new hardware and keep the same server name:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=822945&SD=tech

Note the two DC realted links in the beginning of the article.

Thanks for that. I am not sure what the two link imply..

What I mean is that the first link mentions the problems you can have when you accidentally delete a critical object from AD. The procedure in the article you refer to states that the server account be 'reset'. Would the 'reset' have the same implications that the 'delete' would have? Would it be possible to simply re-join the domain with the newly installed machine and have it use the same server name etc.

Thanks again!
