HI,

I have following scenario

Domain : abc.local (windows 2000 Server)
Exchange : ex2000.abc.local (exchange 2000)
Network : 192.168.1.0/24


New setup has

Domain : pqr.local (windows 2003)
Exchange : ex2003.pqr.local (exchange 2003)
Network : 10.116.2.1/24

Here i want to move all the users to the new Active directory along with their mailboxes into new exchange 2003.

WHat is the best poosible way to attain this?

How many users?  If it's under 40 or 50 you might think of doing some PST work and, essentially, doing it by hand.  If it's more than that... well, you'll probably have to look into using ADMT and ExMerge to get a bulk move performed.  I'm sure there are some other tools available as well, but the heavy-hitters always cost a ton of money.

Yeah, I have the exact same situation here as well. Please reply if you find a suitable solution. I have approx 70 users that needs to be moved from Ex2000 in domain 1 to a Ex 2003 in another NEW domain (also different domainname).

Take a look at the built in Exchange Migration Wizard! It is free and does the same as Exmerge. But it also brings all your SMTP, X400 and x500 addresses over.

But what about the issue that I have to make a new domain-name for my users as well, do you think the wizard can handle the migration from one domain to another? I am thinking a different named AD here.

You could also use Quest's EMM to migrate users. This is an awesome tool to use and all users can continue to work while their mailbox is being migrated. It replicates mailboxes/public folders on the fly. Once the user has been migrated, they will get a notification from EMM and their MAPI profile will be migrated as well. If the end user wants no downtime then this is the way to go.

Are you refering to your internal domain or your mail domain?


And of course, if budget is lacking and downtime is available then PST is good for thee

I am refering to the internal AD domain. The company has changed its name, and this has to be reflected in the logon-domain.

Kurt

EMM can do the conversion for you. I'm also sure that EMM can create new user accounts/mailboxes in your new AD. Even if some of your users are in one domain and the rest are in another, all will still receive mail.

The Exchange Migration Wizard is just for Inter organizational migrations. But the tool is just for the mail attributes and the mailboxes. To migrate the accounts, you can use the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT).

Quest Migration Manager is a great tool. I am in a project where we merge too organization with that tool now. It takes some time to set it up and learn how it works, but when you get it rolling, it works like a clock. It it very seamless for the users.
