I recently took over as the IT person at a school.  The school is running Windows 2000 on one box, Exchange Server 2003 on another box, and Server 2008 on a third box.  I would like to migrate everything from the 2000 box to the 2008 box and leave the Exchange server box in place.  I have looked and searched, but so far have only come up with a solution that involveds upgrading 2000 to 2003 and then migrating to 2008, but the solution did not involve the exchange server.  Can anyone point me to a step by step process?  The 2000 server is out of space on the C:\ drive, so I think upgrading to 2003 is going to be out of the question.  Any help?  Thanks!

Hi Farnz,

What is running on the 2000 box that you need moved over?  Is it something you can do manually like DNS/DHCP etc?

As fas as i am aware there is no upgrade option for going from 2000 straight to 2008, you need to move to 2003 first (and from what i have heard going from 2003 to 2008 is no walk in the park either!)
