Migrate 2003 AD/Exch to 2008 AD/ExchLocked
Hi, I took over the current W2003 AD domain. The setup is like this:
The domain is W2003 AD. The main server is the only Domain Controller, as well as DHCP, DNS, Global Catalog and all 5 FSMO Roles. The same server also runs Exchange 2003. There are no other DC’s on the network.
With a new hardware arriving soon, I have plans to run VMWare to host the 2008 servers.
My plan is migrate to W2008 domain, with a separate W2008 DC server and a separate Exchange 2007 on W2008 member server (running on VMWare). Later install second DC etc.
Would appreciate anyone already done this or have any infor, will be greatly appreciated. In what order should I do this?
I have bits and pieces and want to put a good plan together so I can test and finally do the migration.
Thanking you all in advance.
