Exchange 2000 data migration and outlook 2003

Hell all,

We are replacing an old server HW with new HW.  Both old and new are running windows 2000 and exchange 2000.  We also use the exchange migration tool from microsoft to move all the data over from the old to the new server.  we have calendar sharing set up through exchange by email is served via POP.

We go to each client and configure them to connect to the new server.  The problem is that outlook does not see the content of inbox, contact and calender.  we are able to send and receive mail and it connect with the exchange server.

so the first question is what else is needed in order to access the mailbox (inbox, contact and calendar) data?

We tried to manually export the personal folder and then import it to the new system.  The problem now is that oulook send and received say it does not the right permission for the operation.

Any idea or thought would be appreciated.

Thanks

Izad

Jhon what u wanted to achieve was very simple and actually u did not have to even reconfigure ur outlook clients.All u had to do was to install the exchange in the same ad and exchange organization and move mailboxes over.
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;307917

then follow this artical.Then next time ur users connected to ur exchange outlook would have detected the change and u would have had to do nothing more.In this case all u had to be concerned was that ur server name would have been changed(if that does matter).
If u had to have the same server name for ur exchange then u have to take a diff rout.If exchange is on a DC then that becomes a bit difficult.If it is located on a meember server then go to ur ADUC and reset the computer account for ur exchange then install win2000 on ur new computer join it to the domain and then run exchange setup
with dissaterrecovery option.Then from ur backup or exmerged pst files just import ur data.In this case u have to make sure to check that this database can be overwritten by restore and u may have to run eseutil on the database.I am writting this for the future if u wanted to
redo ur exchange instalation.
