Exchchange Migration to a Different Domain

Hi We have and exchange server 2007 On Domain 1
We have an Exchange 2013 On domain 2 (Virtulized)

What we would like to be able to do is Migrate from Domain 1 to Domain 2, but I am unsure of how to do this and also what implications having 2 exchange servers from two different domains could have

Could any one please assist?

Both Domain are in same forest?

No from my understanding they are seperate

In that case, it will be a cross-forest migration. You can start from this Article.


However, what is the reason for setting by new forest and domain. Same forest it is very easy.

Hi User...

Actually, no official document is present on cross forests move from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013.

According to your work around, I would like to suggest you to export mailbox to PST file &  thereafter import it.
