AD and Exchange 2003 to AD 2008 and Exchange 2010 upgrade


  • hi all,

    i have the following in my current environment :

    2 windows server 2003 AD one is primary and one is addestional, with the following roles installed

    - DNS.

    - DHCP in both DC's with the same scopes in both.

    - WINS.

    - applications are using AD account as SSO.

    2 Exchange 2003 server one is FE and one is BE.

    i want to upgrade the 2003 AD to 2008 AD and achieve the following :

    - use the same IP's and names of the old.

    - migrate DHCP scopes.

    - migrate wins.

    - Migrate group polices.

    - keep the SSO for the applications.

    then upgrade exchange 2003 to exchange 2010 sp2.

    what is the best way to do that and is there any documents to follow.
