Migrating Exchange 2003 to 2010 with unsupported Characters

We are in the process of migrating one of our clients off of their SBS2003 server to a exchange 2010 server and we are running into an issue with unsupported characters in the organizational name.

I.E.

Support-contoso_corp.local

This is preventing us from running the exchange prep so we can migrate the mailboxes to a new information store on the new Server.

Does anyone out there have a way to bypass this issue?

Thanks!!

Try the Legacydn tool to change the organisation name. Otherwise, the best method is to export all the mailboxes to PST, remove the old organisation name and start a new one for the Exchange 2010 installation.

To clarify:

This is the exchange organization name:
Support-contoso_corp

not:
Support-contoso_corp.local

Active Directory's domain name appears to be fine.

we are exporting to PST then we will try the tool after that is done. hopefully the tool will work so we don't have to import and add more time to the project.
