I ran into what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle in terms of migrating from 5.5 to 2003 and perhaps I can get some help here.

The Directory Name (as displayed in the properties) of my existing Exchange 5.5 Server (which I did not install) has a comma and a period in the name. And from everything I have read cannot be changed. (it contains invalid characters)

I have read elsewhere that this sometimes is not an obstacle to performing a migration from 5.5 to 2003 but it appears to have reared it's ugly head in my case when I'm performing the Connection Agreement Wizard as part of the migration process.

I run the ADC Tools and make it rhough Steps 2 and 3 OK but when I run Step 4 which is the Connection Agreement Wizard I get the following error:

"Error: The organization o=Minddrivers is already installed into this forest but the configured 5.5 server is a member of Minddrivers.com, Corp.. Please choose a 5.5 server in the Correct Org."

any ideas on what can do done to overcome this error. If nothing can be done my alternative is to proceed with a plain vanilla Exchange 2003 installation and manually migrate all of my mailboxes over to 2003 - if this is the path I wind up taking what is the best method to export mailboxes from 5.5 and import them into 2003?

thanks in advance.

thanks for the link to that message, however it really did not answer my question. Can you take a look at what I posted over there and offer some insight as to what steps to take next if possible - thank you
