The external contacts and distribution lists from the 5.5 server need to be moved manually to the 2003 server.  Export those from the 5.5 server and massage them into a script on 2003 using the DSADD command.

Mr. Eberhardt... the next step (and I don't mean to say this curtly -- impolitely) is for you to get some real training.  You've obviously taken on a position which requires you to do a number of tasks for which you haven't prepared.  Looking at your question history shows as much.

You should NEVER be in a position with a migration where you ask, "WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?"

These kind of things are PLANNED, TESTED, and THEN DEPLOYED.  If you don't at least learn that, then you are taking big risks with your client's trust AND property.

For this question, all answers above are fine... they just don't help you in the long term.

P. S. Experts-Exchange is NOT a place for OTHERS to do your learning and work for you.  It's where to go when you are either working in territory that you are generally unfamiliar with, or when all the expertise you have just isn't finding the answer -- more of a sounding board.  Please don't abuse the generosity of those who offer solutions.
