I am going to be performing a swing migration from a single Exchange 2003 server to a front end / back end topology and wanted to throw my high level plan out there to see if anyone sees any red flags. I'm certain it should be smooth but always like to throw it out there.

1. Build new Exchange 2003 server for back end. (same os, hotfix and service packs)

2. Create new storage groups and databases on new back end

3. Setup and configure public foder and system folder replication to new back end. Verify by total item count before removing from current box.

4. Test mailbox move with test user to ensure all mobile third party products such as, good, BES, Enterprise vault and backup exec are good.

5. Move remaining mailboxes over to new back end server.

6. Move service accounts, BES, Good etc...

7. Move SMTP virtual server to new service using existing config from current box.

8. Move RUS to new box

9. Move routing group master to new box

10. Remove old server from public folder replication list.

11. Remove data files on old server

12. Remove storage groups and databases from old server.

13. Designate current/old server as front end

14. Test, Test, Test


thanks for the review in advance.

Chris
