InterOrg Replication Utilty

By depechebeckas ·
We recently acquired a company and I have been tasked with finding a solution to share calendars from two different Exchange Organizations (one 5.5 and one 2000. I've read about the InterOrg Replication utilty but I am still unclear on what it allows to be shared. I read that people can share free/busy information but I didn't read that calendars could be shared. I am also interested in finding out if the Global Adress Book is shared as well. I am assuming that an AD connector will need to be installed as well for the GAL information to be shared.

Is anyone familiar with the InterOrg Replication Utility and what type of information that it shares? If so, can you please help me out? I'm so tired of reading Microsoft articles that explain things in vague terms

InterOrg Replication Utilty

Interorg replication will allow to separate Exchange organization share free/busy time and public folder replication. If you wish for the infomration to go in both directions you need to create a publisher and subscriber in both organizations. Also will require that the Exchange 2000 system be using SRS, you will need to place a E5.5 in the environment as a bridgehead between the two systems.

Interorg Synchronization is a separate tool that will allow two Exchange 5.5 directories to share account data. If the Exchange 2000 system installed is not using SRS then you will not be able to utilize this tool.

Use the AD connector would be the way to maintain the Exchange 5.5 accounts from Active Directory, but you would not be able to populate the Exchange 5.5 system with the Exchange 2000 accounts (custom recipients).

There is a proper way of doing this by putting both E2K and E55 under the same organizational umbrella. Requires some major planning, but can be done. Placing teh two under the same organizational umbrella will allow you to exchange calendar infomration, public folder data and account infomration more easily with out having mulitple application in place to perform the same function.

Since I'm limited on space I can not go into much detail; if interested then please drop me a line. - reference this Q&A in the subject line.

Thanks and god luck
