Hi Amos

I am concerned that I see no details of your planned\exisitng AD structure?
Do not even consider the upgrade until this is in place and working

The long term answer will be to use a Routing Group Connector or an SMTP
connector to connect the two routing groups together. Routing Groups are the
repalcement for Site Connectors and are SMTP based.

Directory replication is done via AD and provided you only have one Domain
forest you should not need to configure this. Having said that you may need
an Active Directory connector (ADC) to connect the second site back to the
first after upgarding the first server. ADC's replicate Exchange 5.5
directory information to and from Active Directory whch is used by Exchange
2000\2003 for all Directory based information.
