Replace 2003 with 2008 R2 Enterprise
I am preparing to replace our existing 2003 domain with a 2008 R2 setup.
We have brand new hardware and I would like to get it up and running without connecting to the exisiting setup because I don't want to take across any crud that inevitably exists in a 6 yr old system.
The two major challenges that I can see are moving over the user profiles (<100 users) and email (Exchange 2003 <100 users)
I have been asked to provide Exchange 2010 with high availability hence the Enterprise version of 2008 R2.
What recommendations / advice would you give and please be gentle because it isn't an ideal world and reality rules :confused:
The existing setup is
Server 1 - DC (GC)
PrintServer (no longer used)
Server 2 - DC (GC)
Exchange 2003 + OWA
PrintServer (in use)
