Network Check before Moving from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 - Windows Server

Hi all, I'm going to be moving from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 shortly, and already have a Windows Server 2003 AD environment in place, with a seemingly happy ADC connecting to Exchange 5.5.

    Default Network Check before Moving from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003

    Hi all,

    I'm going to be moving from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 shortly, and
    already have a Windows Server 2003 AD environment in place, with a seemingly
    happy ADC connecting to Exchange 5.5.

    I'd like to make sure that my Windows 2003 environment is optimised before
    making the move to Exchange 2003, specifically I want to look at AD
    tion, FSMO roles, DC/GC placement and anything else that you can
    recommend?

    Does anyone have some tools/scripts/checklists that I could use for my
    project. If I have to go through my environment manually I can, but I'm
    hoping that there is something already out there that will automate the
    process and report anything that it thinks will cause problems.

    Any ideas? All are welcome!

    Regards,
    Katherine

    use DCdiag /v on your DC's in order to check that your Dc's are fine. use
    netdiag /v on the DC's and on the Future Exchange servers to check
    DNS,Kerberos,Etc...
