Setting mailbox limits for migration SBS 2003 to SBS 2011

Hi,

I'm currently doing a migration of an SBS 2003 to an SBS 2010 which contains Exchange 2010.

Have applied Exchange 2010 SP2.

All is fine up to the transfer of the individual mail boxes from the temporary SBS 2003 server to the final SBS 2011 server where I need to increase the mailbox database and individual mailbox limits from 2Gb to 10Gb for certain users.

Can't find a clear document to help me in this apparently simple operation.$

Any ideas?

So your saying you want different set of users to have different set of Mailbox Quota ?

Hi Rancy,

According to the SwingIt documentation, I need to:
1. Increase the size limit of the mailbox database limits on the destination (FinalDC Exchange 2010).
2. Increase the size limit of the individual mailboxes on the source server (TempDC Exchange 2003) .

Have enclosed the relevent pages of the documentation (indicated for Exchange 2007 instead of Exchange 2010.

Some of the mailboxes exceed 6 GB!

So for that you have to ensure that the DB on Exchange 2010 is set to lets say 8GB for all Mailboxes to be migrated over

That sound fine to me so how do I do that Rancy? Have never used the Exchange Management Shell. Could you be explicit in the commands to execute or a link to a document.

Part of the problem is I'm using a French localised server, so I have trouble finding the equivalent instructions.

Also the source mailbox databases (private and public ) is close on 30Gb each. Do I not have to modify a parameter on the destinsation server?
