1 install the software to the new server
2 add the new server to the network as a DC
3 wait for the replication to complete between the two servers (takes a
4 Move all the mailboxes from the old server to the new one using AD
Users and Computers
5 Re-route the clients to the new server using exchange system manager,
wait until all the mail clients (I assume they are Outlook) restart
their mail application, so that the old exchange server re-configures
them to use the new one from now on
6 then demote the old server. You may keep it for a while just to make
sure that there are no problems
Recently we made a similar transition and had no problems.

Good Day 
Presently we have a clone Intel pentium 4 server with scsi hard drive.
and now we bought a branded server which is IBM Xeon. My problem is how
can we set up the new server(ibm) fast configured the same with our old
server. Can we just transfer the hard drive and let ibm detects its
hardware setting. or can we use ghost program to copy the settings on
our old server. We need this because our old server has windows 2000 n
exchange server 2000. If we try to reconfigure the new server we also
have to reconfigure all setting (Mailbox, EMail add, ANTIVIRUS, firewall
etc). We just want to know what is the best and fastest way to do it
Thanks for your help in advance
