    I am going to be upgrading a Server 2003 domain and Exchange server 2003 to Server 2008 and Exchange server 2010. We have one main DC and one backup DC along with another Server 2003 machine running Exchange.

    Can anyone point me to some good how-to's or instructions for doing this? This is a small organization, about 40-50 clients total.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm in the same boat at work. I have about 120 clients and I'm taking the approach of building of building a new AD domain and installing exchange as a new organization in the new domain. From there I plan on exporting the mailboxes and importing them to the new exchange server. At this point I haven't decided how I'm going to export the mailboxes, probably have to exmerge the mail store to PST's or use Powershell if I can extract the old mail store from the new Exchange server.
