  • Moving Exchange Server 2003 from 1 domain to a newly created domain

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to move Exchange Server 2003 from it's existing Domain to a New Domain ? See in our school we are currently creating a new domain and doing away with the old domain. Exchange Server 2003 in our old domain is running on a Windows 2003 Server and the aim is to run Exchange 2003 Server on a Windows 2003 Server in our new domain........also the new domain will have a different name. Any advice would be very much appreciated, thanks in advance.

    We are in the same situation at our school. I have looked at Microsoft support and Goggled this topic with no luck. If anyone can direct me to a KB I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you,

      You cannot move an Exchange server between domains.
      If you want to move Exchange then you will need to export all of the mailboxes out to PST files then remove Exchange (or better still wipe the machine). Then rebuild it and reinstall Exchange when the machine is added to the new domain. Then reimport all of the data.

      All settings and permissions will be lost and will have to be recreated. As will delegates etc.

        Yes Sembee is right. Try using exmerge to export all your pst's from the mailbox and Install new exchange and import
