Using exmerge to move from exchange 5.5 to 2000
Posted on 2001-06-19
A site is being split with half the users remaining on exchange 5.5 in one physical location and the other half of the users being moved to an exchange 2000 new site both physical and logical.
it is possible to create the users either manually or via ADC on the 2000 server but they need the data moved with them. In order to do this I was trying to configure exmerge (the version that comes with exchange 2000)to pull the data from the 5.5 server and merge it into the 2000 server. i am running exmerge from a command line in batch mode specifying the source and destination servers. the first stage is sucessfull and the .pst file contains all the information specified however when i try to merge that onto the 2000 server i get an error in the log:
Error extracting server DN '' (CMapisession::GetInfoFromProfile)
after which the process stops. the user does exist with an empty mailbox before i try this. the rest of the log is correctly identifying the target server until that point.
Can anyone tell me what information is missing to cause this error and hpw to remedy it. I can supply the entire log file if necessary.
