  • Migrating from a Exchange 2003 FE/BE to a single Exchange 2003 server.

    I was wondering if it was possible to perform a swing migration from a Exchange 2003 FE/BE to a single server running Exchange 2003. I only have about 600 mailboxes right now.

    Thanks,

    John

    Swing what?
    The fact that you are on backend/frontend makes no difference. Just do a standard swing. Then remove both the servers normal using add/remove programs and point everything at the new server.

    Although considering the number of users I would be considering retaining the frontend.

      Do you recommend that I follow your .pdf that I viewed on a few websites to accomplish my migration to new hardware?

        Any PDFs that you ahve seen of that article did not originate from me. Someone created a PDF without my permission and started passing it off as their own work. I am not happy about it.

        The process on the link to my own web site is the process I would recommend following. (Well I would, I wrote it). That is a standard swing migration process.
