Exchange 2003 to 2010 mailbox migration going very slow
In the process of migrating from a Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 running on Windows 2008 Enterprise R2.
The mailbox migration is taking forever. 1 gig mailbox taking 12 hours. Something is not right.
Any body experience this before?

- Update NIC Drivers.
- Disbale TCP/IP Offloading on the NIC.
One more thing to check...Does you have any mail scanner application on Exchange 2003. If yes, then disbale during the migration.
Ok. I trying that now.
I also tried this below. It is at least doing more then 2 a time now.
The first test mailbox move was a GIG and went in 15 minutes.
Wondering if this is some Microsoft limit on something stopping me.
