Long story short, i migrated from SBS2008/Exchange2007, Hoping to fix issues i had with that box, New SRV2008R2/DC, Exchange 2010 migrated ok, exchange is generally working but migration has bought across same issues from old SBS2008.(permissions etc on exchange) I (stupidly)  trashed the SBS2008 box too early, DCpromo, removed sbs2008 from domain , .
I would now like to move my exchange/mailboxes from Exchange 2010 to a newley created SBS2011 Box. Only 5 Users/mailboxes, Whats the easiest way to do this with clean install and not a migration. Only 5 mailboxes. no other data. How would i link the new users on SBS2011 to mailboxes that i bring over.

Thanks in advance.

You can manually create users with empty mailboxes on the SBS2011
If you have exchange 2010 Sp1 installed on  both servers you can use new-mailbox exportrequest and new-mailbox importresquest powershell commands.

Its basically creating PST files of the mailboxes and imported them to the new server.

In the process of upgrading to Exchange SP2 on both computers, the service pack has fixed my original issues, so thanks for you help. I did the export and import anyway just to test and it was exactly what i should have done in the first place.
Thanks heaps
