Currently we have 4 Exchange Server 2003 SP1. No FE or BE over 3
locations with high speed links. 
They all are Windows Server 2003. 
One of the servers (EXCH01) is the OWA gateway with FBA that has users
and public folders. 
I am looking at consolidating the Exchange servers to one. 
If I install Exchange Server 2003 Ent as a BE server, can I use the
existing server EXCH01 as a FE, by moving all the users and public
folders off this and then changing it to a FE server? 
What else is need to re configure this server to be a FE? 
I do not want to re-install Exchange. 
This server also accepts incoming mail messages from another SMTP smart
I have read the docs from Microsoft, but its on how to start a fresh
Nothing about changing an already in place setup. 
Any help/pointer welcome
