Exchange 2000 Migration

During the move mailbox step of a 5.5 to 2000 migration, if you are moving mailboxes from a database that is corrupted will the corruption be moved to the new server. I am thinking not since I am not moving the database just parts.

I have tried to repair the database using every tool that I know of and when repaired all attachments are gone. I have to complete the migration to ensure no loss.

My thought is to have all users move as much mail into pst files before the move takes place.

Any other suggestions?

I think the easiest way to do this migration given this scenario (given a non repairable edb) would be to use the exmerge utility.  If there is a relative small number of mailboxes then this tool would be the easiest way imo.   Depending on what you meant by corruption, if the export to .pst works then you should have no corruption after the import to exchange 2000.

What exactly is this corruption you have?  Perhaps there is a way to fix it...

What u  are doing is fine.make sure everyone pst all their
important emails before u do any transfer.use exmerge to
transfer all the mailboxes.exmerge will detect all corrupt
mailboxes and will not trasfer them.
