Good day,

I plan on doing a swing migration soon (2003 to 2003), i wanted to know how to migrate mail enabled distribution groups from server A to server B. under Exchange tasks i can move users but not groups. I think it's done with ADC but after installing Exchange SP2 i can not find that tool. How can i perform this task, how can i get these groups to Server B? any help on this would be deeply appreciated, i need to get this done this weekend. thank you.

There is no need to migrate distribution groups.
Provided you are not creating a new Active Directory domain, the distribution groups and contact objects you have created will automatically be available when the new Exchange Server is brought online. This is because those objects are stored in and directly referenced from Active Directory.
