    What is the best way to go from Windows 2000 with
    Exchange 2000 to Window 2003 Server with Exchange 2003.
    Thanks!

  3. Hi Tim,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    Do you mean that you want to upgrade Window 2000 to Windows 2003 with
    Exchange 2003 on the same box?

    If so, first you should run exchange 2003 setup /forestprep and /domainprep
    first. Then, run exchange 2003 setup to install Exchange 2003.

    Then you need to run ADprep tool to extend the AD schema before you add
    Windows 2003 DC in domain. You can find the detailed information in the
    article of 325379.
