replacing exchange server

By gtechstuff ·
I am planning on replacing our existing exchange server with a new exchange box. The question is, do I need to run forestprep again or do I only need to run domain prep...Any help would be appreciated.

If you're using the same version of Exchange (2000 or 2003) you don't need to since the changes to the Active Directory Schema will have been made and stored on the Golbal Catalog. If you're planning to upgrade from Exchange 2K to 2k3 however you will need to run it again since Exchange 2003 makes changes to the Schema that Exchange 2000 does not.

You won't need to run Domainpred either, what these two tools do is to make changes in Active directory to prepare it for setting up an Exchange Organization, once the changes are made you can set up as many new servers as you want, provided they are version compatible.
