  • import exch2000 data from other forest into exch2003

    Hi,

    Is it possible to import exchange data from exchange_2K server A in forrest A to exchange_2K3 server B in forrest B.
    While

    forrest A AD 2000 servers 2000 exch2000
    Forrest B AD2003 server 2003 exch2003
    different AD name
    different server names
    forrest heve no trusts
    Usernames are within the same format (different UID of course)


    This is a move of the netwerk because of a corruption infection of the domain / netwerk. Its difficult to find some info about this.

    1 solution: export to PST <-> import PST in new maibox.
    Poblem slow resource consuming

    Other solutions possible????

    thanks in Advance.

      Nothing bad with the MS migration tool.
      There is no connection possible between the two AD domains or forrests.

      So the tool wont work.

        'll be the long way round i'm afraid.

        PST is the way to go.

          Actually, with little tweaking you can just mount the old stores into the new server.

          All you need is the same organization name, same administrative group name, and same store name.

          And if that doesn't work, PST is the way to go.

            Thanks for the advice,
            I'll try that in the test environment. Hope the database will mount and connect the user to the mailboxes.
