Not really a specific tech question, so I hope I'm not out of line here, but here it goes...
Can anyone give an estimate of how many hours a migration from exchange 5.5 to 2003 (standard) would take? I need to hire a consultant to do it, and I need to budget for it. I'll be setting up a new server, so both 5.5 and 2003 can exist at the same time, during the migration, but when complete, the old 5.5 server will be removed.
Single server, 55 mailboxes, total size, 1.6gigs (mailboxes and very limited public folders)
Windows 2000 domain, 1 DC 1 BCD
OWA to be set up on separate dedicated web server
New 2003 server hardware/OS to be setup in advance (by me)
That's all I can think of.
Any info will be helpful.
