Move an exchange mailbox from one account to another (merge/not replace)
Posted on 2011-05-10
I just completed a "swing" migration. I went from a sbs 2008 physical standard, to a sbs 2008 premium virtual.
Steps I followed to put me in this predicament. I am reletively new to exchange and the current version of exchange was 2007
Created copy of SBS Server on new server (isolated it so AD did not replicate with old server)
continued to use old sbs server for roughly a week
Added a user in that time period (on old server)
performed migration using sbsmigration swing tool
updated exchange, sql and sharepoint databases (in addition to changed data) from that week
Did not update AD (with the newly added user)
the updated exchange database on the new side had new users mail account (disconnected)
I created that user on the new server - also created an email account (new)
I need to find out how to get the disconnected email box merged with the newly created one
FYI I some a number of similar questions but they all seemed to be off enough to warrant posting a new one.
