Migration scenario - Windows 2000 to Windows 2008 Single domain name
I have a Windows 2000 Single Domain Name with Exchange 2000.
I want to migrate to Windows 2008 and Exchange 2007sp1.
I read that Single Domain Name is not recommanded and renaming a
domain is not possible with Exchange 2000 and 2007. What is the best
Migrate to a new domain? or
inplace upgrade? that means upgrade domain to 2003 then Exhange to
2003. Rename domain. And migrate Exchange to 2007 and then the
domain to 2008. :-(
Thanks all for your input

forest structure is in place without moving domain contents or recreating

name in a new forest and create a new organization in Exchange Server 2007.
Then perform a migration from Windows Server 2000 Active Directory Domain
Service to Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Domain Service, also a
migration from Exchange Server 2000 to Exchange Server 2007 new
