Restore exchange 2007 database on a different exchange server in a different domain

Hello, I was wondering if anyone here has done the following and if it is possible at all.

Restore an exchange 2007 database to a different exchange server running 2010 sitting in a  different domain and exchange forest.
ExchangeWindows Server 2008

So far as I know this would not be possible as I don't think it's possible for exchange 2010 to mount a 2007 database, so I think the different domain and forest part is irreverent in this case. I might stand corrected.

Good question though!

Yes but doesn't that require the databases to be the same version? I didn't think you could take a 2007 database and mount it on 2010 due to the number of database changes between versions? This is one of the reasons why there is no in place upgrade between 2007 and 2010

Exchange 2007 database is on server level and Exchange 2010 database is on global organization level.

Thanks Guys just needed to know that. So to be certain, if you are on a new exchange server in a different domain your exchange org identity will be different correct?
