Is there anyway to rename the Directory name of a 5.5 Org to accomodate a migration to 2003 using the standard process of adding the 2003 server to the 5.5 org and rehomeing mailboxes, public folders etc.

I recently did one, but had to use exmerge because 5.5 had invalid characters in the org and site names.

The setup prep program said to look at a Q article which said to upgrade to exchange 2k, but didn't give really any other information except to document the org and site names because you can edit them later with adsiedit.

Does that mean you can install 2003 into a 5.5 org, remove the 5.5 server then edit the schema/ad?

The first 2000 migration i ever did the Org name had invalid characters. i renamed the org inside the 5.5 admin application. This did not change the directory name but it did change the org name. when I started my move-mailbox migration the new server used the name I had changed to. The new server never included what the directory name had.

So, unless I have totally misunderstood what you are trying to do, just rename your org inside 5.5 and do your move mailbox migration and all should be fine.

Good Luck.
