Upgrade from Exchange 5.5 to 2000

By vanlinks ·

I have been doing a fair bit of reading of upgrading from Exchange 5.5 on Nt4 domain to Exchange 2000 server using AD. My situation is a bit unique from the rest. I need help from the experts.

Here is our network situation; we have upgraded the DC to Windows 2003 server using AD from Nt4.0 domain about 6 months ago. The Exchange is still on nt4.0 using Exchange 5.5. Everything works fine here.

The new exchange server will be using a new server. Given all the info, what is the best upgrade method to go? (in-place or move method) What sort of problems I will be encounter thru out this upgrade process.

Any comments are much appreciated.

Seems like you've already decided to upgrade rather than migrate so stick with that.

Install the new exchange server in the same Org, move mailboxes and public folders, remove old server

Impossible to tell you what problems you'll have but your situation isn't unique. As long as you read the documention microsoft puts out, you'll be fine
