Putting Excgange 5.5 on a 2000 Server

By Patrick Horn ·
Due to budget constraints, I will be installing Exchange 5.5 on our 2000 Server. Any warnings about issues, glitches, or problems I may run into? Also What do I need to transfer from our NT4 machine currently running the program to the new machine to preserve our mailboxes, about 70 of them?

Thanks, Pat

If you want to use the same name on your new server you must follow the instructions i TechNet article 155216.

If not, do the following;
-Install the new server in your existing Exchange site (together with the NT4 machine)
-Replicate public folders to the new server
-If necessary - rehome the public folders (TechNet 185010)
-Move mailboxes to the new server
-Reassign site roles from the NT4 server if you only have these two servers in the site. (TechNet articles 152959 and 152960)
- Remove your NT4 server (TechNet 189286)
