I think all i really need from this question is a little more understanding on the last piece of my migration.
Currently i am in the process of splitting business units from from the parent company.
To date, i have ADMT'd all the users, groups over to there new destination forests.
I have moved all resources such as file servers, app servers to there respective destination forest.
Now i have to move the 1000 + user mailboxes cross org and i think this is where i need some assistance.
my source forest has an exchange 2003 organization in it
Both destination forests have exchange 2007 enterprise in them
I have created all of my storage groups and databases to coincide with the companies SLA for mailbox recovery.
So here are a few questions that i believe i need some assistance on.
I have generated 2 move-mailbox scripts that i will paste the one below.
First, once i move the mailboxes to the 2007 org, do i still need to use the exprofre.exe tool to repoint the users profile as we needed to do in a 2k3 to 2k3 echange cross org move? Or is there some new function in Exchange 2007?
I have followed the following articles in creating my script:
Get-Mailbox -DomainController "file.domaina.com" -Credential $s -Identity "email@example.com" | move-mailbox -TargetDatabase "ssexchange\Second Storage Group\ssmailboxes" -SourceForestGlobalCatalog
"ssfile.domainb.com" -GlobalCatalog "ssfile.domainb.com" -DomainController "ssfile.domainb.com" -SourceMailboxCleanupOptio
ns none -SourceForestCredential $s -TargetForestCredential $t -Confirm:$false
while this does seem to work for single users, i want to find a way to automate the whole move of all mailboxes in a source mailbox store to a destination mailbox store.
exchange 2007 SP1
Windows 2008 Domain Controller
Forest Level Server 2008
Exchange 2003 sp2 enterprise
Windows 2k3 domain controllers
Forest Level Server 2003 Native.
I also read somewhere that you could use exmerge to do this, but i tried to follow those articles and they were not successful, additionally i feel i should learn this new method, as scripting and running things as a scheduled task, is very powerful
Thanks for all the advice!!
