        yeah, people are pretty quick around here. double bumps are likely to get your post ignored...

        2. Upgrading Email Address Policies and Address lists from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010

        3. removing the public folder dB is a dead horse, but you can find walk thrus everywhere, including petri and other sites... Removing Mailbox and Public Folder Databases from Exchange Server 2003

        4. Exchange 2003 to 2010 Transition "Swing Migration"

        i dont think your going to have a hard time if you just follow the instructions and pay attention. if your stuck, then post back with specifics, but i think everything your asking is stuff that had really been covered time and time again.

          Decomissioning is a well-documented process, I've done loads but I always follow that article.

              Good Day ,

              I have one small problem and also strange I did the move of the OAB more tahn two weeks but I saw an error in the event

              Event ID:      1022
              Task Category: General
              Level:         Warning
              Keywords:      Classic
              User:          N/A
              Process MSExchangeFDS.exe (PID=4768). Could not find file  \\exchangeserver\ExchangeOAB\3752f689-cb4b-46e1-bcfe-126d6b2c049c\oab.xml.  This is normal if it has never been generated. Otherwise, make sure  this file has read permission for "Exchange Servers"  group. 
              Event Xml:
              <Event xmlns="">
                  <Provider Name="MSExchangeFDS" />
                  <EventID Qualifiers="32772">1022</EventID>
              I think if I don't fix it I can't Uninstall exchange .

              If you can advise me will be thankful
