Let me first apologize for the cross-posting. I do not know which of these
groups these questions belong to.
I am looking to replace my current Exchange 2000 server with a more-robust
server hardware. The current server is the MAIN Exchange server (there are 2
other E2K servers in the organization) and I want to replace this server for
1. The original admin installed the current server as a DC
2. For clustering. The current Exchange server is a Win2K server, which
can not be clustered.
The questions are:
In order to minimize (avoid) user-downtime, I intend to install the new
Win2K Advanced Server as a member server and install Exchange Enterprise
Edition on it. Is it possible to completely mirror the current settings and
configurations of the current server to the new server?
What are the steps I should be looking into? Will it be possible to
automatically transfer all current configuration to the new server and
decommission the current server?
If this is not possible, what is the recommended approach to accomplish this
thanks to everyone who responds.
