Exchange 5.5 / SP3 hardware upgrade

By ragini.ramalingam ·
Hi,

I need to do a hardware upgrade (ie change the hardware to a better config) to a Exchange 5.5/ SP3 server. This a single site single server scenario, with very critical mails and about 80 mail boxes, three domain names etc.

I can have theserver down for about half a day. Can anyone suggest the best way to acheive this smoothly without loding any config info and existing mail.

Thanks
Ragini

Treat it like a disaster recovery situation. Do a backup, then restore your information store after rebuilding your server.

Microsoft's site has some very extensive white paper info regarding this topic. Personally, your time limit may be overly ambitious.
