New Server

By ccthompson ·
Ok, got a bit of a problem. I have tried to post this before, but not under this "Email" post. Please forgive the repetative nature, but I still have not received a good straight answer.

Problem:
Right now Im running a Windows 2000 Server Box, With exchange 2000 on it. This server is the Domain Controller, its at a small business, and this is the only server in the organization. Until now!

We just got in a new server that has Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003 on it. So I got a few problems here.

I want to have the Windows Server 2003 box to become the domain controller.

I want Exchange 2003 to take over the Email.

I would still like to have the old box as a backup domain controller, and to eventually uninstall exchange 2000 off of it.

I have read many thing of upgrading exchange ect.. Also have read how Exchange 2000 will not work on a Windows 2003 Box, but will work on a Windows 2003 Domain. But I think you need to prep the domain before handing it over to the new box.

Or should I move all the mailboxes to the new machine first, then upgrade the domain controllers later?

Sorry for the long explanation, thanks for any help!
