Moving mailboxes to a different exchange server. - 11.Feb.2007 12:50:25 AM

I have an Exchange 2000 server that is also my domain controller. I need to move all my exchange mailboxes off that server and put them on a different Exchange 2000 server. It is the same version but different name.

I tried the migration tool but it says it can only migrate from an exchange server from outside the domain. How can I move my databases over? I only have three. Pub1, priv1, MainEmail.

I also tried copying the databases from my old server over the databases on my new server. They mount if I allow it to override with a restore. But I don't see any usaer mailboxes if I expand those databases. I believe because the users mailbox exchange paths still point to the original Exchange servers "name" and not the new one.  I would  think they should just have a tool that allows you to move these mailboxes to another exchange server within the same domain.

Thanks for any help

You could move each mailbox from the AD. If you right click on a user in AD and select Exchange Tasks, there is an option to move the Mailbox.

Thanks for the information. I looked at it quickly and I don't think that works among seperate exchange servers but I'll take a more detailed look into that feature. Thanks

Hiya S, you should be able to move the mailboxes between the servers if the are in the same organisation and the same administrative group.

Cheers

Can mailboxes be moved from one exchange 2000 box to another within a different administrative group?

Sorry Synectics, my last post was misleading, you can move mailboxes to a different server in a different group IF your Exchange 2000 is using Native mode.

Thanks

A
