Starting from scratch, A new Domain, Migrating Mailboxes, public folders and users to a brand new domain
Posted on 2008-06-10
It is a long story to explain my reasons for doing what I am going to attempt to do so I will just mention what it.
I have a Server 2003 domain with an exchange 2000 and an exchange 2003 server.
I am going to create a brand new domain and brand new exchange 2007 attached to new domain
I will eventually decommision the old domain (delete it, kill it etc)
What are the processes I need to complete in order to transfer the users, and more importantly the Mailboxes and Public folders.
I have no problem killing the old domain and starting fresh, but i need to transfer the public folders and mailboxes. I can always just assign the mailboxes to the new users in the new domain, I just can't lose any data!
