I had new hardware for the install and wanted to upgrade the OS when
rebuilding the server.  

I made a full backup of the stores and then installed win 2000 server on the
hardware.  On the fresh OS ui then installed exchange 5.5 in recovery mode
(see the kb article), restored the stores from tape into the mdbdata
directory and started services.  Simple install....

Chris,

Did you do it by ways of a fresh install or did you use the upgrade path?

Just did this on 5 exchange 5.5 boxes... 

Worked great!

I strongly recommend that you follow the KB article 155216 after you reload
the server with the new OS...

Howdy All!

 

Did anyone have any issues when they upgraded their exchange 5.5 box from
windows NT to 2000? I am about to take the plunge to start the upgrade
process and any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Troy Krisher
