Migrating Exchange 2003

Hi Everyone,

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?

Thanks,

Theo

Does the old and new exchange system have the same org name and dns name space?

Are you going from SBS 2003 to SBS 2003 or windows and exchange 2003 to SBS 2003?

Do you use Public Folders? and how many mailboxes (and size of data) are we talking about?

The old and new servers are using Windows SBS 2003.  Same OS, same Exchange version, same server name and same IPs.  Only reason for the migration was for new hardware reasons.

We are using Public Folders .  About 50 mailboxes.  Total for private mailboxes and public folders is about 10 GB.

Thanks,

Theo
