    We are in the process of moving our whole domain from 2k3 to 2k8 R2.

    As part of this we will also upgrade Exchange from 2k3 to 2k10.

    I’m looking for a bit of guidance as to the best way to go about this so I can start testing and planning.

    I have built a number of spare “servers” (just high spec’ed PCs) so can stage upgrades and test processes etc.

    What is the best way to move from 2k3 to 2k10 with the least problems?

    We have a single 2k3 server on a 2k3 box with approx 350 mailboxes in a single store (roughly 30-35GB).

    We also use public folders in 2k3 for various room booking calendars.

    A growing number of staff connect to their mail/contacts/calendar on their iPhone and this will continue (and grow) in the future.

    All clients are Outlook 2003 (and will remain so for the time being), and we do not use OWA (but might in the future).

    I need to re-use the server that Exchange 2k3 currently lives on so was hoping to migrate over to 2k10 on a “spare server” and then do a clean build on the old “proper” server and move back over to it. The server will be upgraded to 2k8 R2 with 16GB RAM at the same time.

    Thanks in advance
