Command to export ALL user data from SBS 2003 Exchange Server?

I need to export user information from Exchange running on SBS 2003 for migration to Exchange Server 2013.

Is there a command that I can run on SBS 2003 that will export ALL of a user's data (contacts, calendars, notes, EVERYTHING)?

Are you looking for Exmerge ?

Download from here.
Pradeep DubeyConsultantCommented:
best way is to use robocopy and mirror everything see below command and link for more info:

ROBOCOPY <source> <target> /MIR /SEC /SECFIX

Open in new window

/MIR will replicate data and security (as /SEC is specified) for changed files, and /SECFIX will update just the security for unchanged files. Add /V to the command line if you want to see which files are having their security “fixed” without having their data copied.


check below link also has good stuff to read and put log also for robocopy.

@pradeep08_81:  Are you kidding? robocopy an exchange database to extract all information in there?? (is it not possible this way)  IMHO you misread the question.

Exmerge is the tool here. That will get everything but permissions and rules. Unfortunately those don't move across very well so the end users will have to be told to recreate.

Also be aware of this issue as you are going in to a new domain:

I like Exmerge.  We have only about 15 users to move, and only 2 of them are over 2GB (one is 2.4 and the other is around 10.6).

The X500 changes shouldn't take too much as there are only 15 users.  I did see the ADModify app referred to on the X500 warning page, but the last time it was updated was 2009 - so I won't use it on my 2012/2013 stuff out of an abundance of caution.

As far as importing the PST to Exchange 2013, any pointers there?

Not really, follow these step by step and you should be good to go.
