No cons really; this is the correct step. The only con is probably to considering migrating to 07 which will give you a that significant IO reduction via incremental memory.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Adding Additional Exchange Backend Server
The Current Exchange Setup is as follows:
# Frontend – Backend Setup
# 1 Frontend Server (with RPC over HTTPs proxy) + 1 Backend Server (1000 mailboxes) + 1 Domain Controller
# Windows 2003 Enterprise Server (SP2) + Exchange 2003 Enterprise Server (SP2).
We are planning to add an additional backend server with higher disk and I/O capacity and move the mailboxes on the new server.
The steps are broadly outlined as below:
1. Additional Server joining the Existing windows domain
Can somebody please guide me through the pros/cons of this setup or pre-defined checklist that one needs to take care of in this kind of migration.
Thanks & Regards
