Upgrading Exchange 2000 Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition

Can I upgrade Exchange 2000 Standard Edition to Enterprise Edition? To be more specific, do I have to go through another setup or is there an easy, less time-consuming way to upgrade?

Yes, you can, and the process is very easy. Simply run setup for the Enterprise Edition, and at the component installation page, make sure Reinstall is selected for all of the components. This will then upgrade those components to the Enterprise Edition.
