I installed a 2000 server with AD that will have exchange2003 installed on it. I used the microsoft migration tool to migrate the users and computers from NT domain to AD. What do I need to do to move exchange accounts over to 2003 and bring it online. The old NTdomain was herenet the new AD domain is herenet.local. the NT4 PDC was on a different server from exchange 5.5. I need some help with this and i am dumb concerning exchange 5.5, so please make it easy.

To use ExMerge to upgrade to Exchange 2000 or to Exchange 2003, follow these steps: 1. Use the ExMerge tool to export all of the user's mailbox data to a .pst file, and then export public folder data to

a .pst file by using a Microsoft Outlook (MAPI) client.
2. Remove Exchange Server 5.5 from the existing server (if the same server is being used).
3. Install Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003. This includes the latest service pack and update rollups.
4. Import your mailbox and public folder data from the .pst files that you created in step 1.
The following sections of this article describe how to migrate mailbox data and public folder data in more detail.

The following list describes some of the advantages of using ExMerge to upgrade to Exchange 2000 or to Exchange 2003: • ExMerge provides an alternate recovery method that you can use in case an in-place upgrade is not successful.


• You can use ExMerge to secure data from a failing server and to run a clean installation of Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003.
