Org Name - 17.Oct.2003 4:14:00 PM

We have a scenario just like many others. We have an NT 4 domain trusting our new 2003 domain with Exchange 5.5 and Exchange 2003. I set up the ADC and managed to muddle my way through it, taking about 3 hours per step to get through (something was wrong every step "[Big ). I finally got to the final step of creating the connection agreement when it failed. The error told me to choose an Exchange 5.5 server in a correct org. I figured out it was because of invalid characters in the Exchange 5.5 ORG name. I've read how to change it. Doesn't sound like any fun at all. Is my last hope Exmerge? I also read about running ForestPrep and DomainPrep. I didn't do either of these. Would it make a difference? What about the move server wizard? Would it be useful in changing the org name?

Thanks for taking the time to read my question. ItÆs a bit long winded.

Hi. You have many options

1. If the name of the Organizations are diferent you can use the Migration Wizard of Exchange 2003, all you need to do is

A. Create a Tho way relationship, Domain A trust Domain B and viceversa.
B. If you need to move Accounts from NT 4.0 to your new Organization AD, you can use de ADMT v.2 with this tool you can move the account and Password
c. Then you can use the Migration Wizard to move the Mailboxes fron Exchange 5.5 to Exchange Sever 2003
d. To run the Migration Wizard the Organizations must be diferent, the 2 Exchange server can be on the same Active Directory if you want.
2. Another way is to create an ADC connector to replicate the information Between the Directories (DS and Active Directory), remember you must use the Version of ADC that comes with Exchange 2003, this version is more easy to configure and have a Connection Agreetment Wizard (Step by Step) then when you have the ADC in place you can run the Move Mailbox Wizard to move the Mailboxex fron Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003

3. Exmerge is a Great Tool, as you Know you can extract the Mailboxes to Special PSTs files then import this PSTs to the new Organization
