Upgrading to Exchange Server 2003 • Four upgrade scenarios for Exchange Server 2003: • Upgrading from Exchange 2000 Server • Upgrading a cluster from Exchange 2000 Server • Migrating to Exchange Server 2003 within same organization • Migrating to new Exchange organization 70-284 MCSE Guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administration

  4. Upgrading Exchange 2000 Server to Exchange Server 2003 • Reasons for updating to Exchange Server 2003: • New features, such as improved remote access • Need to standardize servers to Windows Server 2003 • Upgrade process is not overly complex • Overall infrastructure is shared • Both versions may coexist without connectors 70-284 MCSE Guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administration

  5. Upgrading Exchange 2000 Server to Exchange Server 2003 (continued) • Exchange 2000 Services to remove before upgrade • Key Management Service • Exchange 2000 Conferencing Server • Exchange Chat service • Instant Messaging service • cc: Mail connector • MS Mail connector • Microsoft Mobile Information Server • Upgrade front-end servers before back-end servers • Other servers may be upgraded in any order 70-284 MCSE Guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administration

  6. The Upgrade Process • First step: backup server is selected for upgrade • Actions following backup: • Close all Exchange 2000 Server utilities • Run ForestPrep • Run DomainPrep • Ensure server runs at least Exchange 2000 Service Pack 3 • Install Exchange Server 2003 • Remove Exchange 2000 Server optimizations from the registry 70-284 MCSE Guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administration

  7. The Upgrade Process (continued) • Disabling Terminal services closes utilities opened by other administrators • ForestPrep extends Active Directory schema • Run ForestPrep several days before actual upgrade • Considerations in running DomainPrep: • Run in root domain if first Exchange 2003 server • Run once in each domain before installation • Installing actual upgrade of Exchange Server 2003: • Run setup.exe (found in \setup\i386 directory of CD) • Most Exchange 2000 Server settings are carried over • Remove certain Registry settings after upgrade 70-284 MCSE Guide to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Administration

  8. Activity 14-1: Downloading the Exchange Server Deployment Guide • Time Required: 10 to 20 minutes • Objective: Download and review the Exchange Server 2003 Deployment Guide • Description: The Exchange Server 2003 Deployment Guide is a document available from Microsoft that describes different options for installing Exchange Server 2003.
