migration from exchange 5.5

By the jedi ·
i am running exhange 5.5 on an nt4 box service pack 6a. The network has a 2003 member server, acting as a pdc. I want to upgrade the nt4 box to 2003, leaving exchange 5.5 on it for the moment. Can i just put the 2003 disk in & upgrade the server & will echange carry on working. Also are there any issues i need to be aware of.

Exchange 5.5 will NOT work on Windows 2003. You must upgrade to Exchange 2003 first or upgrade to Windows 2000.

Sorry, you need to upgrade in this order:
Upgrade NT4 to Windows 2000
Upgrade Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003
Upgrade Windows 2000 to Windows 2003!
