Unity 4.0.3 with Ex5.5 u/g Ex2k

My customer is upgrading from Unity 2.4.6 to 4.0.3 next week. (single site, 2 exchange servers) The messaging database is Ex5.5 Next month they plan to upgrade Ex5.5 to Ex2k. Would you recommend holding the 2.4.6 to 4.0.3 and going straight to Ex2k, or the 2 part approach?

Is the migration from EX5.5 to Ex2k within Unity 4.0.3 straightforward.

I'd reccomend waiting and doing it all at once myself. The instructions for the 2.x to 4.x upgrade can be found in the 4.x install guide here:

it's a "forklift" upgrade which means you're exporting data from 2.x, installing a new 4.x system and importing the data into it. The docs list what data is saved and what's lost in this process - you'll want to make sure to review that.

The licensing for Unity 4.X has changed. Licensing is now no longer done via USB or Parallel dongles as it was in the past. Did you get a new license file from the Cisco Licensing dept?
