  • Exch 2007 SP1 - Illegal Characters in Organization name

    I am attempting to update to Exc2007 SP1 and have gotten an error explaining i have illegal characters in my Organization name. This is absolutely correct for i have a , and a . in my Org name.
    I am not sure how to go about changing the Organization name. Anybody have some direction to start on?

    As far as I am aware, the only way to do it is via LegacyDN which is a tool from Microsoft.

    However it is very high risk. I wouldn't do it without assistance from Microsoft. It will put the entire store at risk.

    My usual advice would be new forest, new domain.

    Someone ignored the warnings when upgrading from Exchange 5.5 and didn't take the opportunity that provided to correct the org name.

      You are right on with the 5.5 upgrade, i have cleaned about everything else from this domain and this seems to be the last but very inportant piece.
      I appreciate your response and will have to consider the legacydn or new domain. i am not sure which will be more painful though with a good backup if kegacydn fails i can always go to new forest new domain
