Migration will be from 2007 to 2010/2013 then from 2010/2013 to 2016

Why do we need to migrate from 2007 to 2010/2013 then from 2010/2013 to 2016?

As per Microsoft limitations, we cannot migrate to any version of Exchange without passing the next version


Process plan & schedule day's to Migrate Exchange Server 2007 to Exchange 2016:

  • Install Exchange 2010/2013 into Exchange 2007 organization.1-2 day’s
  • Configure Exchange 2010/2013 and Exchange 2007 coexistence. 2-3 day’s
  • Migrate Exchange 2007 mailboxes, public folders, and other components to Exchange 2010/2013.2-3 day’s - Depending on Complexity
  • Configure Exchange 2010/2013 SSL-Cert. 1 day
  • Decommission and remove all Exchange 2007 servers.1-2 day’s
  • Install Exchange 2016 into Exchange 2010/2013 organization. 2-3 day’s
  • Configure Exchange 2016 and Exchange 2010/2013 coexistence. 2-3 day’s
  • Migrate Exchange 2010/2013 mailboxes, public folders, and other components to Exchange 2016. 2-3 day’s (Depending on Complexity)
  • Configure Exchange 2016 SSL-Cert. 1 day
  • Decommission and remove all Exchange 2013 servers.1-2 day’s

    so a total is 15-20 days’ work (rough estimate) 




Decommissioning Exchange Server 2007 Process  :

The steps to decommission Exchange Server 2007 are listed below:


1. Backup Exchange Server along with its User Mailbox database(s) and Public Folder database(s)


2. Migrate user mailboxes with their complete properties and settings to another Exchange Server


3. Migrate Public Folders to another Exchange Server


4. Disable Local Continuous Replication of User Mailbox Database and Public Folder Database


5. Remove User Mailboxes


6. Stop the usage of Exchange Server 2007


7. Remove the Public Folder Database

 

7a. Force removal of Public Folder Database


8. Remove the User Mailbox Database


9. Remove the Storage Groups


10. Remove or move the Offline Address Book (OAB)


11. Move Routing Group Connector to another Exchange Server


12. Remove Exchange Administrative Group, if no other Exchange Server is installed in the domain.


13. Uninstall Exchange Server 2007








 Hardware & Software Requirements:


- 2 Servers for Migration steps.


- 2 Server’s if we need to establish 2 parallel Exchange server’s one as a backup server.


- 2 SAN/NAS Storage Virtual Disks if we going to use DAG as High Available Database with the same drive letter.


- Windows Server 2012 R2 /2016 License.


- Windows Server UsrCALs


- Exchange Server 2016 License.


- Exchange Server UsrCALs


-- Mailbox Exchange Repair & Recovery Software, in case we got corrupted data.


- Offline Copy of the mailbox database:


-
Exchange database (.edb)


- Transaction log (.log file).


-
Checkpoint file (.chk).


-
Reserve log files (.jrs).


-
Temporary file (tmp.edb).


How to Calculate Space for new Exchange Server :


Space depends on Number of Org Users, Here we have 200 users, with 4GB Quota


 (200 * 4GB ) +(200*15MB)= (800GB +3000MB )   (no of mailbox’s * Quota ) + ( no of mailbox’s * whitespace)  Active

 (200 * 4GB ) +(200*15MB)= (800GB +3000MB )   For use ( Database Availability Groups  )  DAG’s for High Available    Passive


Note:
Whitespace isn't freed up until after the retention period is passed for the mailboxes you have moved, also not all the space of a mailbox will be freed up so trying to stop stores expanding by moving mailboxes out of them doesn't really work, you would be better off moving the mailboxes to a fresh store and removing the old store, this will give you the added advantage of defragging the store as well and should result in smaller databases

“Export your Exchange 2010 mailboxes to another mailbox using the Export Mailbox Wizard of the Exchange Management Console.”


The Exchange Management Console (Export Mailbox Wizard) of Exchange 2010 helps to export mailbox data to another mailbox. 


Before Starting the Export


The account you are using to export the mailbox needs to have Mailbox Import Export role assigned to it. You can do this using Exchange Management Shell:


New-ManagementRoleAssignment –Role "Mailbox Import Export" –User <user name>


Once the account has been granted the permissions, the user can perform the export action. 


Export mailbox content using the Export Mailbox wizard (Exchange Management Console)


The process to export the mailbox data using Exchange Management Console is given here:


  1. First, open the Exchange Management Console.
  2. In Microsoft Exchange On-premises > Recipient Configuration, click on Mailbox.
  3. Now, select and right-click on the desired mailbox(es) and click Export Mailbox.
  4. In the Introduction page, Browse and select the target mailbox or provide a target a folder name. Then, click Next.
  5. In the Conditions page, select the filters according to your requirements. Click Next.
  6. Select the export options as per your need and click Next.
  7. Summary of the mailbox export is displayed. Verify it and click Export.
  8. The Completion page shows the result of the export. Click Finish.


A new folder (specified earlier) would be created in the user mailbox (can be seen by accessing the user mailbox in Outlook).


It seems easy to export mailboxes using the Exchange Management Console, but it exports the mailbox data to another mailbox only. It cannot export mailbox data to a PST file. But there is an easier way of exporting EDB mailboxes to PST - Kernel for Exchange Server. Also, this Exchange Database recovery software repairs corrupted files before exporting them. This professional software is error-free, quick and efficient. The data is unharmed and unchanged in all manners during the export.

Along with that, a professional tool, Kernel for Exchange Server is introduced for quick and efficient EDB to PST export. Exchange 2010 users can choose any of these methods as per their requirement.
