1. Install Exchange on a member server in the same organization. 2. Move mailboxes from original to new Exchange server. 3. Remove Exchange from domain controller. -----Original Message----- From: Scott Clarke [mailto:scott.clarke@xxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, September 22, 2005 9:36 AM To: [ExchangeList] Subject: [exchangelist] Disaster Recovery Planning for Exchange http://www.MSExchange.org/ Hi all, We are in the process of completing a DR plan. Our Exchange 2000 server was installed about two years ago and was the first W2K server to be installed...thus it is the root domain controller and DNS server for the domain. Personally, I do not like this setup. Does anyone know the best way to have the Exchange server NOT be the DC for the domain?
