exchange migration

By dmiller ·
I have foud everything but what I need. I just want to be able to migrate mail boxes from the existing 5.5 sit to the newly created 2000 exchange but it seems there is no answer to how to use or configure a site connector or X400 connector to be able to move these boxes. Cisco boy gave me an answer but I needed his phone or email to understand. I am new at exchange and this is driving me crazy. I have both a 5.5 and a new exchange 2000 site I want to migrate mail boxes from 5.5 to 2000. I have run the ADC on both AD and exchange. When I try to connect I get an error that tells me communication error. Someone or CiscoBoy please email me back.

exchange migration

by Matt Duggan In reply to exchange migration

The best tool in any Exchange admin's toolkit is ExMerge. It extracts the contents of a mailbox. It pushes mailbox content back into mailboxes.

You can use it to back up the server data (exmerge all the mailboxes out to .PST files, back them up, then if you screw up you can just merge the data back in after a rebuild).

I used it recently to exmerge the mailbox content out from Exchange 5.5, rebuilt the server as Win2k/Exch2k, recreated the mailboxes (which are obviously empty to start with), and Exmerged the data back in.

You often run into glitches with name formats, but once you get your head around this aspect of things, it's a walk in the park.

Exmerge is on the Exchange2k CD, under Tools.

Hope this helps.
