Hi -

The place to check for this is the current Unity Reconfiguration Guide. Note - use this link for moving from voicemail only to unified messaging, which is also applicable to Unity version 4.x - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity/42/upgrade/guide/ex/ru_140.html#wp1046626

(one of the hyperlinks in the guide is broken). You will also want to look at the section in the guide that discusses Separating Unity and Exchange - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/unity/42/upgrade/guide/ex/ru_120.html

Either way you handle this, it will require DiRT backup and restore. If it were me, I would separate Unity from Exchange first and get that settled out for a week or so using Unity 4.0, before scheduling the upgrade to Unity 5.X.
