removing exchange 2000 correctly

By adesai ·
Hello, I am new to this company. They running both exchange 2000 and exchange 2003. Everything is pretty much on exchange 2003 (as I can see). There are a few former employee's mailboxes on 2000 (which i already backed up). How do unmount exchange 2000 correctly and ensure we do not have any downtime?

Removing Exchange 2000

1. Remove or migrate any remaining mailboxes from Exchange 2000.
2. Make sure you have replicated any Public Folders to Exchange 2003 server
3. Make sure you have replicated any System Folders: Organisation Forms, Free Busy info, and the Offline Address Book to Exchange 2003.
4. Before uninstalling Exchange 2000 server, shut the server down for a few days to see if nothing else is left to do or no issues arise
5. When happy then uninstall Exchange 2000.
