Moving Servers between Sites in Exchange

By Miketee ·
In Exchange 5.5, is it possible to move a server, with mailboxes, in a site to a new site?
Bottomline is: I have three sites I would like to join to be one. If so, how?

Moving Servers between Sites in Exchange

In answer to the first question, no. Because of the design, it's not possible to just connect an Exchange server to a new site. Nor is it possible to use the Move Mailbox utility in Exchange Administrator to move mailboxes from one site to another.

The best answer is probably going to be the EXMERGE utility. Using this utility, you can export all the user and mailbox information from the original site and import it into the new consolidated site. I don't have enough experience with it togive you specific pointers but it was designed specifically for what you're trying to accomplish.

regards!

Yes you can. Move Server Wizard

The Microsoft Exchange Move Server Wizard allows administrators in organizations that use Microsoft Exchange Server to change the structure of, or information about, their site or organization.
The Move Server Wizard allows administrators to:
?Move a Microsoft Exchange server between existing sites and organizations.
?Move a Microsoft Exchange server to create a new site or organization.
?Move a Microsoft Exchange server to a new site in an existing organization.
?Merge existing Microsoft Exchange server sites and organizations.
The Move Server Wizard, including documentation, is available for download from the Microsoft Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/exchange/downloads/MoveServer.htm. TheMove Server Wizard is included on the SP3 compact disc.

READ the documentation. It does have limitations, especially with Public folders.
