Migrate global address list sbs 2003 to sbs 2008

Hi,

We've already taken the sbs 2003 server offline....but I do still have access to the server.  We're migrating to sbs 2008.

Well, there are contacts in the old global address list on the old server that need to be migrated to the new server.  How can I do this?

oh fyi, I was told that there were multiple global address lists on the old server as well.  I need all of them to be migrated.

Thanks!

I think this should have happened automatically when you installed SBS 2008 and exchange 2007.

Sorry forgot to mention that sbs 2008 was installed on a new box.  Sbs 2003 wasn't "upgraded".

So it's more like a new installation, and I need to copy a global address list from another server running sbs 2003.

global address list are just custom search

so you if recreate those global address list in the new server,
and go to your old server to pick up the custom search field.

you should able to recreate them easily.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

you'll have to connect a workstation to the old server, join the domain, setup outlook then follow this article

Could I use a crossover cable to create the mini-domain?

Go to best buy/Fry's/MicroCenter, etc. and get a 5 port switch 20.00  Much less hassle

My method is getting the information from the server directly,

CrisHanna_MVP method is geting the information via workstation

I've never connected a workstation to a server using a crossover, but theoretically they should communicate.
