Migrating Exchange 2000 to a new server

I need help migrating Exchange 2000 to a new server. The existing Exchange 2000 is just a standalone server while the new server will be a cluster server.
This really is not that much different from any Exchange server migration. In this case, you add a new Exchange 2000 cluster to the site containing the existing Exchange 2000 server. Next, create the desired about of Exchange Virtual Servers (EVSes) in the cluster. Then, move the mailboxes and public folder data to the new EVSes, move any roles from the standalone to the EVS and decommission the old server when finished.

Of course, this is just the high-level migration steps. For more information, read Deploying Exchange 2000 Clusters and Deployment Best Practices.
