Congrats!
I can not recommend ExamPrep.

Sybex reads a little soft for objectives.

Maybe MOC.

I also recommend the MOC for Exchange 5.5, if you are going to take the exam. You should have a good working unerstanding of 5.5 and upgrading to 2000. 5.5 and 2000 are two different animals, so it is good to work with both.

Take your time. Best of luck!

It will be a good start. I liked the MOC for 5.5 because it came with the software too.

I work with Exchange 5.5 however barely understand it.

However I want to migrate my NT 4 server to 2000 AD. The problem is though I have SBS 4.5 so I am unable to connect to the 5.5 server to attempt to migrate accounts.

As you might know with SBS everything has to be in one machine. There is no direct upgrade path [except to buy SBS 2000 and I want to do away with SBS].

This setup doesn't work out because I want 2 DC's and SBS doesn't allow that. Just basically for fault tolerance, if one server goes down it doesn't take auth with it.

Yeah that's a tough upgrade path. But you got 5.5 experience that's good.

I highly recommend the Resourcekit for Exchange 2000. That Book is a Monster of about 1000+ Pages.
Call me ( you got my Number), if you need Details.

Upgrade? There is no upgrade path. Everything has to be scraped and rebuilt from the bottom up and I am unsure as to how to do this (plus the fact I'm not certified to do it either).

The network needs an upgrade, however this administrator doesn't know how. Yep I'm willing to admit I'm clueless.

I'm just book smart with 2000 and AD. I work with NT however wasn't able to take any NT exams because they expired before I was out of school.

I made a mock 2000 domain for testing/learning and installed Exchange 2000 thinking maybe I could some how move their Outlook settings over to 2000 however it looks like people will lose their stuff if I do so unless I backup all 10 users PSTs. The master calendar in the public folder is also another worry. Everyone lives off of that with day-to-day operations. How do I move that?

How many businesses use Windows Server 2003? Not many. Most are starting to jump on the 2000 AD wagon.

I think if you were going to upgrade that situation to 2k, just note all the current settings, export all the mailboxes to PSTs.

I figured. I tell people to clean out their boxes and keep them small because of that. So what do i see. Mr. X has 4,542 e-mails (2,394 unread).

Nice right? Wink

That's nothing.  We have a guy around where I work that has upwards of 20,000 messages (that's just the Inbox, combo of both read and unread).

He is a total packrat and is afraid to delete anything because he may need it one day.

He constantly complains that Outlook runs slow, but will not listen to the tips to delete a lot of messages, and archive some as well.  Scary stuff considering this guy's professional positions  :rolleyes:

I tell him the same stuff. Delete some useless email and Outlook will run faster however he refuses.

Our staff of consultants:
a) Carry large backlogs of email with attachments.
b) Are limited to 40-something megs for the Exchange Inbox.
c) Archive their inbox to a personal share on a file server.

I have taken to:
a) Warning them when they approach 1 Gig for their archive folder. Everything I have read say that PST files are very likely to corrupt at this mark.
b) Encourage them to break it up by year or project, into new PST.
c) Record the PST to CD-Rom by year or project for their use. They will have to copy it to their workstation and insure that it is not read-only to open it.
d) Make a copy for the company archives. (Consider the legal ramifications of this first!)
