1. Moving Exchange5.5 to w2k member server

Hi everyone,

I actually have a exchange5.5 sp3 NT4.0sp6 server with owa, IIS3.0 ,
and proxy server, all in the same box. Due to the overload of this
server, i want to move the exchange5.5 portion to a new machine.

I want to install it to a W2k server. I dont need AD for now. Someone
can tell me the differents steps to do this?A nd which services on the
W2k server must be on/off? Do I need to install IIS on the W2k server?

Also, if I move Exchange from the old machine to the new one....the
old machine stay my iis/proxy/firewall server. So my question is how i
will configure my mx records if the new Exchange server will be behind
of my old machine?

Any help would be very appreciated.
