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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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>
