Moving Exchange 5.5 from NT4 to Win2000

By adridup7 ·
My NT4 server has gotten too small now. I have purchased a new server running Win2000 Server. I need to get Exchange 5.5 from the old server on to the new one with all the mail accounts and settings the same. What are the procedures i need to follow?

It sounds to me as though you want to install a replacement 2K server with Exchange 5.5 and move the data with as little interuption and configuration as possible?
I did this myself 2 or so years ago, before I migrated to Exchange 2000. You can find information on moving your Exchange 5.5 services to a new server here (you simply install the new server with Windows 2000 as opposed to NT 4);en-us;155216&Product=ech

It worked like a charm for me.
