    I am in the process of my first swing migration and all is going well to
    now.
    I was attempting to forklift Exchange from one server to the other but
    ntbackup would not overwrite the existing databases.
    I the tried another approach. I dismounted the stores on original sever,
    copied the data to new server, allow the to be over written and mount on new
    server.
    This all went well except for the fact that on both machines there are
    emails missing. I would appreciate any clues as to why mail would go missing
    after simply dismounting & remounting a store on the original server.

    I should point out that this is my SBS2003 server and a good one to learn
    on.

  2. are you doing the swing on your own, or did you purchase Jeff's Swing
    Migration Kit? If the latter, then you have direct support with Jeff.
