   I am looking to upgrade my Exchange 2000 SP2 installation to Exchange 2000 
Enterprise.  I have been told there is no direct upgrade except to basically 
wipe the machine and start over.  If this is the case, please question/comment 
on my method.

   I am assuming I can stop all Exchange services, then make a backup of the 
current database file.  I can then uninstall Exchange 2000 (or even wipe the 
machine), and then re-install Exchange 2000 Enterprise.  I could then copy the 
file back, or restore it, and then setup a site to point to that file.  Is that 
the easy way, or is there some utility that will export, then import the 
databases.  Thanks in advance.
