Migrate Exchange 2003 to Microsoft Hosted Exchange without using SSL
Posted on 2013-01-04
I need to migrate an Exchange 2003 email database to the cloud, but currenly I do not have SSL configured on this server. It seems that using the Cutover Exchange Migration method requires you to have ssl. I don't have that configured and would rather not have to do that, because that adds one more thing that I have to configure for this. The database is probably 30 gb. I can't get access the database until Saturday afternoon at this time. I will first have to reconfigure the server for SSL so MS can access the database, then begin the migration. If the database is not fully migrated by Sunday night, then I have to have my users use https on the old server until I get the hosted exchange fully migrated. It is one step, I wish I did not have to do.
