Moving a Group from 1 server to another.

By Technomancer ·
I'm in college taking my MCSE courses and came across a question of my final exam for Exchange 2000 that stumped me. And to top it off, after I turned the test in, the instructor refused to answer it till the next class even though everyone had turned in the test and couldn't change their answers.

The question was this... In Exchange 2000 how do you move a user from one server to another? And a group?

The first was pretty simple but the second is one that has stumped me. I've scoured thebook from "kiver to kiver" as my grandfather would say and I can't find that process anywhere in it.

No one else in the class could answer that question so I thought I'd throw it out here and see what kind of response I get.

Now, to relieve those of you who may think I'm cheating on a test, don't worry, we are changing subjects starting next class. I would just like independant confirmation whether or not it works.

Thanks for the help

Question(s): Moving from one Exchange Server to another exchange server[are both E2K? or is one 5.5?]and are both under the same domain? or moving across different domains?

further, when you say user? are you refering to an AD user? or are you refering to moving mailboxes or public folders?

and! Is the "group" an OU? and in moving said group, is it moving them within the exising domain, a subdomain or to another domain? or subdomain.

Ok, this is a Native Exchange Server so that means that it is 2k to 2k only. As to whether the group is an OU, the test didn't say, but while doing the practical side, I couldn't find that either. I hate not having all the answers. :)

Exchange is integrated into active directory so it is the same as the user.
There are two types of groups - security and distribution.
Create a distribution group and they appear as an email group in Outlook
Just right click on the group in AD and move them like the user.

Then again, as the question says from one server to another, was your answer for a user - in AD select Exchange tasks and move mailbox and select the other exchange server as the information store?
So for the distribution group - right click - select exchange advanced - select expansion server and the server you want to use to expand the group (the server should be the one that normally sends email to the group)
Please post what the answer was if you have time in the future

The answer is .... A group does not have a mailbox, therefore you cannot move it. It is only an alias/forwarder to the members of the group.

In active directory Users and computers, right click on the object and select "move" then select the destination.

Here is the answer.
In Exchange 2000 the groups sit in AD not on the Exchange Servers. You could however specify an Expansion Server (which I believe has nothing to do with moving the group) from AD Users and Computers. This is how:
In AD Users and Computers click on the view menu. Click Display Advanced Features. Double click the group you are looking for. Click the Exchange Advanced tab and click on the Drop Down list that syas: "Expansion Server".
