  • Can anyone point me to the righ place?

    I have a Wndows 2003 Active directory with an Exchange 2003 server, i want to upgrade to Active directory 2012 and Exchange 2010.

    Is there any migration path?

  • Hi,

    It's not recommended to install Exchange and AD on the same box for performance and security perspective. As far as I know, upgrading both Exchange and AD server is not that easy, from AD's perspective, you can install an Windows server 2012 server and promote it as a domain controller in the same domain with the old server (and retire the old DC after both exchange and DC are migrated), for exchange part, you can do the same thing (by migrating the mailboxes from old server to new exchange server), however, for this part (exchange part), you had better to create another thread in Exchange Community forums to get more suggestions from experts.
