Thanks for your posting here.
If you use Exchange 2000 on the Windows 2000 cluster, I would like to
suggest that you try the following plan.
1. Move all resources from node B to node A.
2. On node B, upgrade Exchange server 2000 to 2003, then upgrade Windows
2000 to Windows Server 2003.
3. Move all resources back from A to B.
4. Do similar steps 2 on node A.
5. Move some resources back to Node A.
Here is a link to a whitepaper contains some useful information:

If you have already installed Exchange 2003, you can upgrade Windows 2003
directly. Below is a known issue you may need to notice.
