mailboxes after SBS 2003 to 2001 migration


I'd really appreciate any help on this.

All mailboxes have been moved without trouble.
But most mailboxes are still listed as legacy mailboxes.

Is that supposed to be like that ?

FYI, migration has been finished, Exchange removed from the old sevrer and demoted.

Thanks for any help.

Hello,

Run the powershell command Set-Mailbox -id <alias> -ApplyMandatoryProperties for each mailbox that appears as legacy.

Thanks, I'll try that.

But why did those remained as legacy ? aren't mailboxes supposed to change after being moved ?

Did you move the mailboxes using Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2010 tools?

I followed microsoft's migration instructions. Everything's pretty much done from Exchange 2010.

Not sure why they remain as legacy then. I've only ever seen that when someone created an Exchange 2007/2010 mailbox using Exchange 2003 tools.

Should it be safe then to run that command for each legacy mailbox ?

Yes. If the mailboxes are on the 2010 server, it is safe to run.

Thanks man, that worked.

The thing is the mailboxes are still marked with the green arrow and listed under move request ?! even though move request on all says completed.

Any idea why is that ?
