Migrating Exchange 2003
Posted on 2009-05-20
Quick question: I've recreated a brand new SBS 2003 server for our migration. It's got the same AD, DNS, Exchange, IIS, etc as the old.
For Exchange, is it possible to do it's migration by just going to the original servers, shutting down all the Exchange services, and copying over the [Priv1.edb, Priv1.stm, Pub1.edb, Pub1.stm] files to the new server, start up Exchange, and have it all work? Or do I absolutely have to go through the whole forklift or exmerge or some other formal migration process?
