Unity Upgrade 4.0(5) to 7.2

Unanswered Question

I am planning a Unity upgrade from 4.0(5) to 7.2. We are running Windows 2000 Server, SQL 2000 SP4, and Exchange 2000. I would like to upgrade all of these apps except SQL. I have the Unity, message store 2003, and server 2003 Media. Can someone tell me what the correct path would be. Upgrade OS, then, exchange, then Unity? What do I need to be aware of? Any help would be appreciated.

According to this document, I'm in a pickle. So, I have to forklifit upgrade this?

"Upgrading from Windows 2000 to Windows Server 2003 is not supported when any additional software has been installed on the server (for example, SQL Server 2000 or MSDE 2000, Exchange or Exchange administration software, or Cisco Unity). "

Is your message store a different box or you have everything on the same box?
