  • Consolidating Exchange 2000 Servers

    i have a multi domain model in my network.
    There is a Windows 2000 parent domain that has two Windows 2000 Child domains under it.Each child domain has an Exchange 2000 Server.I want to move all the mailboxes from the child domains to the Parent Domain Exchange 2000 Server and decommision the Child domains.
    I used ADMT to move User and Computer accounts from the child domain to the parent domain.
    How can i move all the mailboxes from The child domain exchange 2000 server to Parent domain Exchange 2000 Server.
    Please note that all the Exchange Servers in the parent and child domains reside in a single exchange organization.
    What tool can i use for Intraforest Migration

    You don't need to use any special tool.
    Simply move the mailboxes using the move mailbox wizard. Move them to the server that you desire.

    The problem comes with wanting to drop the child domains. You will have to mail disable the existing account and then attach the mailbox to the new account after running mailbox cleanup so that the mailbox becomes detached.
