Moving Mailboxes from EX5.5 to EX2K

Can someone confirm this for me. My Exchange 5.5 org contains multiple sites. After cloning the accounts using ADC I want to move mailboxes from the 5.5 servers to my E2K servers. I'm being told that I can only move mailboxes from the 5.5 site that my E2K server resides in. Other sites will have to have their mailboxes moved with a third party tool such as NETIQ. Can someone who has done this confirm or deny? I hope this is clear.

Thanks,
T

Why did you divide your Exchange 5.5 org in sites? If the reason was slow WAN links, you should stick to them and install an E2k server in each site.
Then, when you have switched to native mode, you can move all servers to one administrative groups and create appropriate Routing groups.

Unfortunately,I inherited this configuration. My goal at this point is have a centralized email configuration. Our company is not so large as to have the number of sites we do.
