    I want to both my W2K AD and Exch 5.5 (1 Server) to a new Server in one
    session and demote the old W2k / Exch 5.5 Server. I have installed W2K3 and
    Exch2003 on a new member server. I would like to make sure the sequence and
    steps outlined below are correct.

    1) Build new mbr server, completed successfully
    2) Run DCDiag and NetDiag Tools, completed successfully
    3) Run ForestPrep and DomainPrep, completed successfully
    4) Run Exchange 2003 Set Up and install SP2, completed successfully,

    Here's where I need advise ...... Week End cutover

    5) Install DNS on new mbr server
    6) Promote new mbr server into DC
    7) Enable AD on new mbr server
    8) Make new mbr server Activate Global Catalog
    9) Transfer the 5 FSMO roles to new mber server
    10) Build User objects on new mbr server
    11) Migrate/Export mailboxes (what's the best tool/method?)
    12) Build Public folder(s) (what's the best tool/method?)
    13) Build Contacts and Groups (non security) (what's the best tool/method?)
    14) Demote and turn off old W2K / Exch 5.5 Server
