Hi sir,

I am using windows server 2003 standard with exchage server 2003,nearl 60 users,my domain controller and exchange server is configured in one server, I am planning to buy an new server with more storage capacity,also I need to upgrade the server2003 and exchange server 2003 to windows 2008 standard+exchange server 2010.

My doubt is I need to create all users in new server or not,otherways I can change the all users,

Also would like to know what are the procedure to migrate Active directory with exchange server 2010 in a new server.

You can't perform an inplace upgrade. When you get the new hardware make sure it is 64-bit system.

Is the new server going to also be a Domain Controller? Or will you retain the existing DC?

When the Windows Server 2008 is setup and all the pre-reqs installed. You can prepare the domain and schema from the command prompt.

In the command prompt navigate to where the Exchange 2010 SP1 setup files are and type in the following commands:

setup /preparead

setup /prepareschema

Proceed with the installation of Exchange 2010 SP1. When complete in the Exchange Management Console you will see the list of legacy mailboxes, you can then perform a Move Request and the mailboxes will be moved to Exchange 2010.

Additional details in the following article:
