Exchange Transition from 2000 to 2007

Posted on 2011-05-04
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a windows 2003 domain with a single exchange 2000 server installed, I want to install a new exchange 2007 server into this domain then move all the roles to this and remove the Exchange 2000 server. I have started by running the exchange best pratice analyzer and it has come back with some errors. I can not seem to find any more information on these, I dont think IFS is used by any thier party and the email address space is GFI faxing that i have been told will support exchange 2007. The public folder one is my bigest concern. as anyone had these simular errors any help would be gratefull.

Error 1

the exchange IFS drive is enabled

The Exchange Installable File System (IFS) drive on server is enabled. Exchange Server 2007 does not support Exchange IFS drives. Any applications using the Exchange IFS drive will need to remain on Exchange 2000/2003 servers.

Error 2

non-standard address space found

A non-standard address space of '' was found on recipient policy 'Default Policy'. Contact your vendor to obtain a proxy address generator DLL that is compatible with Exchange Server 2007.


Application public folder hierarchy present

Application public folder hierarchy 'Applications' was found in the organization. Exchange
Server 2007 public folder services do not support application hierarchies. This hierarchy
will need to remain on Exchange 2000/2003 servers.
