Exchange 2k3 to 10 mbx move?


Hello please assist with mailbox moves from Exchange 2003 to 2010. It seems I can only move a single maibox using 2010 EMC? Will I have to use the 2010 built in command shell to move all mailboxes from 2003 to 2010? What would be the procedure?

Thanks again

You can select multiple mailboxes via EMC & move them in a go.
or you can create a simple script that will move the users provided in a txt file

But EMC can't pick multiple users from 2003 correct? Please show how I can select all the 2003 mailboxes from the 2010 EMC.

Also, the link was confusing. It just says to create a csv with alias "alias" and save as batch. Can you first show me how to move them via EMC?

First you need to create the .csv file having the Alias or Displayname in the format and save it as batch1.csv

You can select as many as you like, as long as they are all going to the same database. Just select in the usual way while holding down ctrl or shift, then choose to move the mailbox.

Yes, you need to provide user alias list in csv/txt file

Sorry I'm totally lost. In 2010 EMC, I navigate under "Recipient Configuration/Mailbox" These are the 2010 mailboxes only. Not mailboxes from the 2003 Server.

Just to be clear, I'm moving all mailboxes from 2003 to 2010.

In EMC you should also see 2003 mailboxes with an icon that represent a Legacy mailbox.
