Hello,

I have a server that has windows server 2003 and exchange 2003 on it and is the main DC. I am planning to put new hard drives on it and do fresh install of server 2008 with exchange 2010. any idea on how to migrate from exhange 2003 to 2010 in this scenario?

All the articles I've seen so far are about migrating between servers by bringing a new hardware into the network. But I'm upgrading hard drives on the same machine. any idea?

P.S Down time is not an issue here!

Thanks,

Sep

There is no upgrade-in-place option for Exchange 2003 to 2007 or 2010. You will need a swing server or a new server.

Thanks for the reply

I have a server that I can use as the swing server. whats the best option? I was thinking of

- install windows server 2008 and exchange 2010 on the swing server
- migrate to the swing server
- instale new hard drives on the old server
- migrate back to the old server

any easier solution?

As Ed said...there is no method to perform an in place upgrade from 2003 to 2010. To do what you are describing, you will need to stand up another server and load Exch 2010 on it. Then you will do a side-by-side migration. This will allow you to migrate all data, settings, connectors, etc.

Here are some links to help you get started:

Thanks Tim,

I've seen those docs. but I'll look into them in more detail.

That's the way I'd do it.
