Here is the scenario:
We have one box acting as a PDC (NT 4.0 SP6a) for File/Print and another one
acting as a BDC (NT 4.0 SP6a) with Exchange 5.5 SP4
We are planning major upgrade that includes:
2 new servers to replace the PDC and Exchange DBC. Each box with new disks
(we will not use old hardware)
The existing Exchange store is near to 16Gb
It is planned to move to Windows 2000 Enterprise server for both servers (to
be able to implement clustering later on) and also Exchange 2000 Enterprise
server (clustering and and information store > 16Gb)
We have about 120 users.
The exisiting domain name and Exchange organisation name will need to be
changed in the upgrade process.
I have been reading technets and so, but am still not sure what is the best
way to do that.
Ideally, I would prefer to test the process on the 2 new servers before
re-doing "live", and avoid as much as possible down time (one or two
Does someone done something like that or similar and would share his(er)
experience, and advise me on the best steps to follow?
