  • Migration from other messaging shared system

    Hi


    My manager told me to deploy exchange server 2003 SBS edition. Currently we take mail space from our internet service provider for our mail server which is hosted on Exim. How should I deploy my exchange server parallel without affecting our current mail system?

    "exchange server SBS edition" isn't just Exchange. You have the whole single AD thing as well. What do you currently have setup for users?
    EXIM I think can run razor or something so you could have it just scan the mail before it hits exchange? I think we used to run EXIM on freebsd but was never involved (bit too geeky fo me )
    You can install and setup SBS without affecting anything until you want email to route to it and the users to connect therefore my first question about users still holds.
    cheers

      SBS is designed to allow users to migrate from a solution such as something provided by a service provider. However I would suggest that you engage an experienced SBS consultant to assist with the move. The POP3 connector for example can assist with the move to Exchange for email, and the Connect Computer wizard can assist with the move of workstations in to the SBS domain. It is all documented on the Microsoft web site, in their white papers and online help. I would suggest that you go and read, there is a lot of information out there on SBS implementations.
