I'm following a recomendation by SpaceManSpiff (see ServerFault Backstory link above), I have a new Windows Server 2000 hardware up and running and I'm about install Exchange 2003 to begin the mailbox move. However I'm not sure exactly how to go about joining the domain. Should I just join the domain using System Properties, Network Identification, or should I setup the Active Directory for a second Domain Controller?
Keep in mind the ultimate goal is to move exchange from the old server to the new server then remove the old server (current DC) from the domain. So at some point the new server needs to have AD but I'm not clear if that's before or after Exchange is installed.
Also, I know what you're thinking. Don't worry, I'm planning an upgrade to Windows 2003 very soon, I can get Windows 2003 w/ 15 CAL for less then $100 from Techsoup.org.
