A single MS Exchange Server 2007 with SP2 is housing 90 mailboxes. I checked and found that there are few mailboxes almost 10 Gb in size. We want to export and then import them into a new exchange 2007 server as well. I heard that we can use export-mailbox, is this correct? Shall I use the powershell on the exch server?

thanks,

If the Exchange servers are part of the same Exchange organization then you can perform a Move-Mailbox in Powershell or through the GUI (right click the Mailbox -> Move Mailbox...). If the Exchanges servers are not connected then absolutely export-mailbox is the correct way to go.

Export-Mailbox can either be run from the Exchange server or remotely.

Export-Mailbox –Identity ‘alias’ –PSTFolderPath <path to where PST should be created such as c:\PSTs\alias.pst>

Open in new window

Is the new exchange server in the same exchange organisation as your current server.
if so you can just use to EMC to move the mailboxes.

I think just use the "includefolders" will do. The problem is when I run export-mailbox command, an error message prompted me to use 32-bit system. BTW, how to install the exchange 2007 management tools?

Download Exchange 2007 SP2 32-Bit from here

Use below command to export mailboxes:

Export-Mailbox -Identity <Alias> -IncludeFolder "\Calendar","\Tasks","\Contacts" -PSTFolderPath <Path to PST>
