I am in process of migrating from SBS2003 to SBS 2011 using tools and procedure from and I have issue with re-homing orphan mailboxes and wanted to know how I can re-home orphan mailbox to a source store as tool in the kit is giving wrong store name for source DC.
I found below VB script from Microsoft and was wondering if anyone has used it and it would work in my case.

    Assuming you are within the support window you could/should contact sbsmigration with any questions about this or any other proceedure within their boundries.... which I believe this would be.

    Nitpicking a little, but the question was clearly answered.  The problem was solved by following my suggestion.  But, as always, it is up to the poster to decide if points are justified.

    We got the updated utility from SBSMigration and that resolved the issue.  The utility provided by them originally had bug in it.
