Need help phasing out Exchange 2000 server with a 2007 exchange server newly deployed.
Posted on 2007-03-21
Ok, I've installed Exchange 2007 on a Windows 2003 server which is a member server. This new server is running in conjunction with an old Exchange 2000 server, on a win 2k server. I see that Exchange 2007 server has populated itself with a list of all mailbox and public folders and dist. groups, etc. But are these real mailboxes or just representations? What else must i do now to bring the data over for real?
There is a move mailbox wizard, but when i do that, it tells me that if I will have to move the mailbox from the first storage group to another one, but there is only one option there. How do i create a second storage group?
Anything else i must do now, besides moving the mailboxes over? Is getting the ex 2007 server to send and receive internet e-mail simple? What steps to take? Thanks, and sorry, I'm totally new to 2007, but have previous exch 2000, 5.5, and 2003 experience. Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.
