Server's migration


K

Kim

Dear all,



Currently, we have 3 offices located in different location (China, HK and
US). Our AD structure is 1 forest (root) and 3 Childs (domain). Now we are
running windows and exchange 2000 & 2003. Server 2003 is only member server
and running exchange 2003 on it.

Now we are going to replace our exiting server's hardware at our US office
(both root domain and child domain-US).

For all the new servers, we will install windows 2003 and exchange 2003 on
them (we may upgrade all office's windows into 2003 with AD 2003 late this
year).



Here is our Action plan

Root Domain in US

1) Implement Windows 2003 for root Domain by running Forestprep then
run Domain prep on windows 2000 PDC.

2) Once we have the W2k3 servers in place assign the FSMO roles to
them.



Child Domain in US

1) Implement Windows 2003 for US Domain by running Domain prep on
current windows 2000 PDC

2) Once we have the W2k3 servers in place assign the FSMO roles to
them.



Exchange Upgrade



Run setup /forestprep from the Exchange Server 2003 CD

Run setup /domainprep from the Exchange Server 2003 CD

Install Exchange 2003 and install all the updates

Configure Exchange Server 2003 to Host Public folders and Other Roles

Start Moving mailboxes using Mailbox Wizard



Regards,

Gary.
