exchange 5.5 to exchange 2000, NT to windows 2000, SQL 7 to SQL 2000

Post by fshgu » Thu, 12 Aug 2004 07:44:02


Hi, We are considering to migrate our network to a mix windows 2000
environment, while the Exchange 5.5 (currently in a windows 2000
member server) will migrate to windows 2000. We have two windows NT
domain controller, and one Exchange 5.5, and two SQL 7. We also has
Windows Terminal 4 with Citrix metaframe 1.8, currently we are not
going to migrate them.

My questions are:
What is the process and sequence for the migration?
Could I setup a seperate Exchange 2000 box and move the mail box from
Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000, and then re-install the Exchange 5.5
box for something else?
What needs to be considered for migrate the SQL 7 to SQL 2000?

Thanks in advance,

fshguo.

Thanks for your posting here.

Do you mean that you want to migration to anther Windows 2000 domain? If
so, you can try the ADMT tools to migrate the users, computers to the new
domain. Then the use perform Exchange Migration.

Regarding the Exchange part of the migration project, I would like to
suggest that you post the question in the following groups:

microsoft.public.exchange.admin

You can get more efficient and useful information regarding Exchange
questions there.

Have a nice day!
