    I moved a 2003 dc over onto another box found the Microsoft File Server Migration toolkit invaluabe for copying the files and shares over.

    [quote="tarquel"]

    Could I promote the Exchange box as the DC, wipe & reinstall the DC, attach to domain and promote back again?
    I don't think that Exchange likes to be on a DC.....

    Thanks djm968 & k-strider for all your info.

    I'm gonna have to leave it for now sorry. I dont want to rush it - plus I have to setup this new server which any insight from you would be very welcome at the moment.

    The thread is: http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...ewtopic&t=4612

    If you have a moment to look at it and suggest the quickest and easiest course, please do.

    And feel free to grab me on msn if you want to explain something hehe

    *heads off to Google to look up info*....

    Many thanks
    Nath
