Exchange 2010 - import PST options
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have read all kinds of info about importing PST to Exchange 2010. I have Exchange 2010 SP1 and I want to import some PST's from an old Exchange 2000 server that have been exported via Exmerge. I have read about PowerShell commandlets, Exchange Manager Tools, etc. to do this but it's not clear to me where these are supposed to be found/installed. For instance:
am I supposed to install PowerShell on the box running Exchange and then run the commandlets from the command line?
am I supposed to install the Exchange Management Tools on the Exchange box?
if I create the mail users on the new Exchange whose PST files I want to import can I simply import them into the 2010 Exchange mailbox via their Outlook?
is there a simple GUI that points to a folder full of PST's and and allows you to point which one goes where in the 2010 and then you push the button and all get moved at once - e.g. like an 'inmerge' as opposed to an Exmerge?
do I have to write a script to do that kind of many-to-many import?
