Old Server. New Server. Exchange also

By ccthompson ·
Ok, I got a Windows 2000 Server that pretty much controls everything and anything including exchange 2000. Just bought a new server with Windows 2003 installed on it.

I know i must run forest/domain prep on the 2000 server from the 2003 CD, but will this screw up exchange 2000? I have read many things that exchange 2000 will not work with 2003, but it will still reside on the 2000 machine.

So will exchange 2000 not work in a 2003 "domain", or will it not work on a 2003 "machine"?

Help!

Exchange 2K

You can run Exchange 2000 in a Windows 2003 domain, but there are some considerations. Check out these pages;

Remember that you cannot run Exchange 2000 on a Windows 2003 server. If you Exchange box is a DC, you are in for a fun ride.

Fun Ride?

Maybe I should wait for a while. I am purchasing another new server soon that will have w2k3 and exchange 2003. Then maybe I can just import everything to the new exchange box!

Thanks for your help!
