    removing the exchange domain servers group from the
    builtin administrators group to no avail. What do you

  2. Hi Rebecca

    Every situation is different, if I had a server with inherent problems I
    would probably format and install cleanly. If you Exchange is running you
    can Exmerge the data from SBS 2000 Exchange to 2003 Exchange.

    The Exmerge utility for 2000 is on the SBS 2000 CD's the 2003 version is on
    the www.microsoft.com/exchange web site.

    This scenario is documented in the upgrade white papers.
