Install Windows 2000 and join existing domain. Install exchange 2000 after
that and join existing Org and Administrative group of the existing server.

You could then easily move mailboxes (Exchange Task), move public folder,
system folders (pfmigrate) and move services like SMTP (just a simple
re-configure of the connectors.

When you done, leave both servers running and make sure no email related
traffic is going to the old server. 

Uninstall exchange 2000 on the old server and dis-join from the domain.

Now you could de-commission the old server.

NOTE: This is a high level overview server migration for the scenarios you
described. You still need to have detailed information for each step. Look
out for KB and of course

Hi all

I have an exchange 2000 server running on Windows 2000 server.  As the
hardware of this server is getting old, I want to build a new server.  I do
not plan to move to Windows 2003 server nor Exchange 2003 for now.

Can someone give me some advices on how to move the data from one server to
the other?

Here is the setup I have:

Windows 2000 standard
Exchange 2000 standard
   - 25 mailboxes
   - huge public folders
   - customs forms
