Upgrading single windows 2000 domain to Windows 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 .

Upgrading single windows 2000 domain controller and exchange 2000 standalone server to Windows 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 .

Sorry Been long time since I wrote an Article .

I am working on a project where I have to migrate a

single server windows 2000 domain controller with

exchange 2000 installed to a windows 2008 R2 with

Exchange 2010 .

the project sound easy at first , but steps involved are

more complicated and involve more configurations .

you can either upgrade windows 2000 first or

exchange first it really depends on your options. you

can follow my step by step article or jump betwwen

the steps to configure as required .

First Let`s start with the infrastructure setup

This is what I have to start with :

1- First Server : Windows 2000 Server SP4 ,

Exchange 2000 SP3 Installed

2-Second Server : Windows 2008 R2 , (Exchange

2010 will be installed )

ok Pull a chair and let`s do it 🙂

when doing a migration from exchange 2000 to

exchange 2010 , we can not do an inplace upgrade as

exchange 2000 is a 32 Bit and Exchange 2010 is a 64  Bit . so what can we do to move mailboxes and solve

this issue ?

well first we need to at least bring the exchange 2000

to an earlier version such as Exchange 2003 and then

do a regular Migration from Exchange 2003 to

Exchange 2010.

we can install a new Exchange 2003 server into the

current Exchange 2000 administrative group, and

then use the Move Mailbox utility to move the

Exchange 2000 mailboxes to the new Exchange 2010


In this article I will explain how to do an in-place

upgrade, the steps are pretty simple and you can

find lot of articles online describing the process . But

before we start to think about performing the

upgrade, we need to have a few things completd :
