Unity 4.0 VM only, server swap

Due to a problem shipping an ICS7750, a customer now has one of our lab MCS7835s as their Unity 4.0 voice mail (not Unified).

Now the MCS7825 that is replacing the un-shippable 7750, is going to have to be swapped into the customers environment, in place of the 7835.

The current Unity VM build on the 7835 has Exchange 2000 on box and is a stand alone domain. The 7825 that is going to replace the 7835 is going to be set up in this manner as well.

What is the best way to get the Unity database as well as the Exchange message store info, as well as the AD (or easy creation of a new AD with all the same user info), swapped on to the new server, without starting from scratch?

I know DiRT would do the Unity sql database but would do nothing for the Exchange or AD. No exchange aware back up utility is available.

Thanks, Casey

Actually, DiRT will haul your messages and create your AD accounts on the fly as well - check out the training video and help files on it's home page here:

DiRT does oh-so-much-more than just cart your SQL database around.

While you're there, be sure to snag the latest vesions of the backup and restore tools if you're going to use them.
