I am doing a test upgrade, in VMware Workstation, from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007. I have followed a number of documents from Microsoft on the upgrade or transition process, but got a little confused when it came to the Recipient Update Services portion. Based on articles that I read, specifically http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb288905.aspx, in steps 8 and 9 it is confusing. When I went to the ESM>Recipients>Recipient Policies area, I noticed that the Mailbox Manager Setting was already unchecked. I did not touch it. Does this get unchecked somehow automatically when installing Exch07?

Next, Under Recipient Update Services, is it necessary to transfer them to the new Exch07 server? I know that Exch07 does not use them, but you cannot uninstall Exch03 unless they are "moved" to another server.  Is it necessary to move them at all or can I just safely delete? The Enterprise one needs to be removed using ADSIEdit.

Third, when I tried to apply the default E-Mail Address Policy on the new Exch07 server, it failed with a few errors as seen below. I created a new E-Mail policy and it seems to be working.

How does the default email policy in the Exch03 server get transferred to the new Exch07 server? Do I need to worry about these errors? But, as I said, creating a new default policy in Exch07 seemed to work.

****Its ok if you do not have it checked.

****It is failing since all those information about oab version 2, 3a,4 have also email address applied and are visible in GAL. Apart from that everything should be OK
All the BEST !!!!!!
