Moving data between two Exchange 2010 servers (same forest)
Posted on 2013-11-23
We had a major crisis here in the office with our Windows 2008 R2 Std. Running Exchange 2010 Std. The short story is that we are now running the old server as a VM on a Datto appliance (dont ask me why restore to old server didnt work, thats a whole new discussion - not happy with Datto right now!).
Anyway, I had to rebuilt the old server, fresh new OS and Exchange install. I need help in migrating data between these two Exchange 2010 servers. The ideas is to move data over the weekend here, and then shutdown the old Exchange 2010 (VM session). Both server are on the same domain/ forest.
Please advise on settings permissions, mailbox move, connectors, the whole nine yards. I have an SSL key for OWA on the old one, but I know how to move it to the new server with changing the firewall to point to the new server.
Looking forward to your responses. Thanks in advance.
