    hi all,
    just trying to get the correct picture of the process, here’s the situation:
    – two servers, one is a DC, second is an Exchange 2003 server
    – Windows 2003 sp2 ENT, Exchange sp2 ENT
    – the exchnage machine needs to be replaced
    here’s the process the way I see it, please correct me if I’m wrong:
    1. back up exchange on the current server – full backup using ntbackup into a file
    2. install the new server OS, all prereqs and Exchange
    3. restore from backup to the new machine, into the sandbox mailstore (can’t remember the exact term since I don’t have exchange in front of me here)
    4. move the mail store online, and remove the empty one.

    any possible culprits?
