I'm importing some PST files from Exchange in SBS 2000 to Exchange 2007 ( 64 bit ) in SBS 2008 using cmdlet. I heard  there is some issue when running cmdlet in 64 bit systems, that it just work fine in 32 bit one.

    The PST import command isn't available on the 64 bit - you can only run it on 32 bit, which means you need to use another OS that is running the 32 bit management tools and Outlook.

    Thanks Simon,

    Can you provide some information on how to do it? What manegament tools? Or you mean to import PST with outlook itseft on all clients computers.

    Accepted Solution

    You need the Exchange 2007 32 bit management tools and a copy of Outlook on the same system - not the Exchange server.
    You can then use the import-mailbox commandlet.

    Why no use exmerge.exe. You will have to name the PST file the same as the mail boxes but it works great.

    You have to do it on a 32bit system like XP but it work very well. You will alos need the Management tools from Exchange 2003.
