I now there has been a lot written about moving users mailboxes from SBS2003 to O365, however there are a couple of questions that I can't seem to find answers to.
I found this article that steps though the migration process (I am sure there are other articles) - http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2013/05/31/step-by-step-migration-of-exchange-2003-server-to-office-365.aspx
The above article references this site - Exchange Deployment Assistant - (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/exdeploy2013/Checklist?state=2284-W-AAAAAAAAQAAAAAEAAAAAAA%7e%7e
) - which allows for the migration of the mailboxes. I am looking at doing a Cutover Migration.
What I am not sure about and would like answered is;
1) Does the syncing continue after the initial sync, or do you have to manually run it again to bring in email that arrives between the time the initial sync was completed and MX replication has finished?
2) This article (which also covers the Cutover Migration) indicates, under next steps - Implement single sign-on, which points to (http://community.office365.com/en-us/wikis/exchange/835.aspx
In this article step 2 is - Convert on-premises mailboxes to mail-enabled users.
I can't do Single Sign-On with FS. Therefore do I need to do/is it advisable to do - this step.
I am looking at implementing Dirsync for password syncing.
3) Configuring Outlook.
We have a mixture of Outlook 2007/10 - Once we cut the MX records to O365 Outlook will need to be reconfigured - is it just a case of creating the autodiscover canme record?
If outlook does not pick up this autodiscover record, can Outlook be reconfigured manually without creating a new OST file?
I know there is a lot of information here, but I believe in providing everything I know and letting you determine if it is relevant.
You help is very much appreciated.
