  • 2000 to 2007 Migration

    Currently have a 2000 ex box, will be putting in a new 2007 box into the same domain and same exchange organisation.

    Currently our email is delivered by SMTP to the mailserver directly, and not via MX.

    From what I have read if I move a set of mailboxes from the 2000 to the 2007 box when the emails arrive at the exh 2000 box they will be sent to the 2007 box?

    Hope that makes sense

    Cheers

    Yep that is what happens. As part of the Exchange 07 install it creates a routing group connector that will deal with all of that for you.

    One caveat I have found is check that your default smtp server doesn't have a smarthost specified as this causes issues with the transfer.

      Thanks for the quick reply.

      I have had a look at our 2000 box, and we have 8 SMTP connectors under Routing Groups -> First Routing Group -> Connectors.

      Is that what you mean?

      Thanks

        Nope, but you will need to recreate them on the 2007 eventually.

        Im talking about the SMTP Server. Look in Protocols, SMTP to check

          Just checked no smart host defined.

          So basically once we have fully migrated over to the 2007 we create the Connectors on the 2007 and delete the routing connector linking the two boxes together?

            Yep.
            They exist quite well together (have a 2003 and 2007 in front of me now).
            Have you upgraded the Address Lists etc yet?
            cheers

              Have not done anything with the 2000 Exchange yet. We need to migrate up to a 2003 domain first. Then we can get our new exchange server. However its hard work getting approval for £100K project.

              What do you mean by "Upgraded the address lists?"

              Thanks

                If you haven't done anything yet then I would have a read up as much as possible.

                These are a good start.

                Set-AddressList "All Contacts" -IncludedRecipients MailContacts
                Set-AddressList "Public Folders" -RecipientFilter { RecipientType -eq 'PublicFolder' }
