Good morning, I wanted to make just one last check before upgradeing from E2k to E2k3. Main Server is Win 2000 server SP4 1.5g Ram dual 1gig proc. OP system drive mirrored 18 gig Log drive mirrored 18 gig, page drive 18 gig, data is an external raid 5 scsi 7bay hotswap 180gig free, lots of room for growth... Exchange 2000 Enterprise BE with 2 front ends. All on SP3 Doing full backup weekly, differential nightly Using ARCServe 2000 SMTP Gateway server has GFI Essentials & GFI Security for all incoming & Outgoing mail. Mcaffee is installed on the server, but excludes checking the M: drive I will be upgrading the main back end to Exchange Enterprise 2003, and the front ends to Exchange Standard 2003 (since there is no longer a requirement for enterprise to be a front end. I no longer will host the messenger service, its allready gone. I will upgrade to Win server 2003 upon completion of a smooth running exchange 2003 deployment I will upgrade the front ends first (will the current secure sign in still work without "tweaking" (I hope) I will upgrade the backend last I will drink 3 pots of coffee and be a nervous wreck, since I have 1 domain, 1 environment and 1200 users. The last install was a nice gradual thing. I got it running first, then slowly added users. This time around I don't have that luxury. Its gotta work, on the first try. I've eliminated all errors in the event logs, at first glance things are running real good, so good that I'm scared. I've read all I can, prepped all I can, and been to every MS training course I could talk the bosses into (MCSE 2000 with Exchange 2000). AT FIRST GLANCE, AM I READY? AM I FORGETTING SOMETHING? All you folks who've upgraded, how'd it go? Should I look out for anything?
