Move storage group from exchange server in domain A to domain B
Posted on 2006-05-09
I recently created a trust between two forests. Each of the forests has it's own exchange server. I would like to move the storage group from one exchange server to the other exchange server. I have a stronger setup in the exvironment that I want to move the group to. FE BE configuration with RPC over HTTP capabilities. AD in the new infrastructure is setup to host multiple domains, however I don't really want to start from scratch for these users. They have schedules that probably go on for months.
Question is: Is there an easy way of moving the storage group from the one server to the other server and then just setting the users up with RPC over http and then playing with DNS.
Can I setup the domain that I want to move in AD on the hosted environment and then move all of the users mailboxes to that new server. Then, have them authenticate to the new server.
Both exchange servers are 2003 SP2 one's running on 2003 enterprise and the other on standard.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
Let me know if any of this isn't clear.
