Running Exchange on the Domain controller is not recommended in the
first place. How ever if there is no choice you can follow the steps
mentioned below

 

 

 

1)       Install Windows 2003 Ent with SP1 and latest patches

2)       Promote it as Additional Domain Controller and configure DNS

3)       Make it as GC

4)       Configure this IP as Primary DNS to all clients

5)       Transfer all 5 FMSO roles to the new box

6)       Introduce exchange in the same admin group

7)       Move all mailbox's to the new exchange server

8)       Replicate all PF's if you have on the old server

9)       uninstall exchange from the old box

10)   de-promote old DC

 

 

You will have to consider moving other sevices also such as DHCP or WINS
etc if you have
