Hello Experts,

I am finalising a SBS2003 -> SBS2011 migration and dismounting the sbs 2003 mail store, but it just sits there and doesn't do anything, how long would I expect to wait for it to dismount so I can delete it?

This is first time I have done something like this so just wanted some feedback?

questions, have your email have been migrated from sbs 2003 to sbs 2011?

if yes, then you need to go through properly decomision your sbs 2003.

Hi thanks for the reply,

I was following a mixture of migration documents, the one from demazter and also this one
In the end I have followed what you said and attempting to decomission the old server.
