I should say, this is the simplified method.  The details would have more
steps, e.g. replicate/re-home public folders and other "first exchange

domain controller (or promote to a DC) while Exchange is installed.

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.

have the Exchange server NOT be the DC for the domain?
