Outlook Remote Setup

By n6ld ·
Our team had just created another Exchange Server (v5.5) on our network. We have to move everything from the Old exchange Server to the New one. I think we pretty much have that part completed. We created the new server and had it join an existing Organization, just different Sites.

Our mail server is setup to have mail delivered to the user's local HDD. We are currently in the process of testing/moving mail/users between the servers. Once we have all the mail boxs moved to the new server, I need to configure each user's system to point to the new exchange server. This can be a very lengthy process. Is there a way to automate this task?

I would like to create a bat file and have it so that when a user logs on, this bat file will run and make the neccessary changes. I just need their outlook to point to the new server.

Thanks, and Have a Nice Day
Lenard

Hi.

If your 2 exchange servers are in the same site and organization (in the Exchange sense), the exchange profiles will be automatically updated when users will launch their Outlook.
Boxes must have been moved by Exchange admin tool, and the 2 servers must be running until all profiles have been updated.

In other cases, you can use SCRIPTIT (Ms free tool) to automate the change in configuration or use VBSCRIPT to change directly the registry.

Another solution could be to automatically create a new profile with PROFGEN and NEWPROF (from Exchange Reskit).

Hoping to have helped you.
Bye.

Thanks for responding, actually our servers are separate domains. We used Exmerge for this task. The problem I had was re-pointing the user's profile to the new exchange server. We had to do it the old way...teach our TASOs to perform the job....
