Changing Exchange Organizational Name

By mtisdel ·
With a recent company buyout, I need to move one organizations Exchange server out from another's Organizational Name, and give it its own name. They are on separate domains now, but they replicate Global Address books.
Does the Microsoft Move Wizard take care of this situation?

Changing Exchange Organizational Name

Woah! not an easy one, and to be avoided at all costs. It is much easier to change the display name (select the organization object and use the properties dialog box). This should suffice in most cases.

good luck!

Yes it does. But I'd recommend giving it a neutral name next time (such as Exchange) as the organisation name is only really used with X.400 addressing, which the user never needs to see.

Short Answer; Yes, MS Move Wizard takes care of this.

Long Answer; the best way of using the MS Move Wizard is to have a new installation with the new organization name and to stop the mail services while the move wizard is doing its job.

Makesure that you have a good online and an offline backup of the current exchange server.

Post move, you may have problems with user authentication as of necessity, the exchange server will need to move to the other domain. At this point, you will have to establish trust relationship between the domains and verify its operation.

You will also need to update the user desktops to attach to the new Exchange server.

If you plan well, you can achieve this in a single rollout of new Exchange Client Outlook 2000.
