    Hi there

    I currently have 2 SBS servers - one version 2000, and one version 2003.

    They are currently in different domains.

    I have moved all the data from the 2000 to 2003, all that is left on 2000 is
    the Exchange element of 2000 SBS

    I now want to move this across to the 2003 SBS, and decomission the 2000 SBS

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    All the best!

  3. Hi Gareth,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    You can try to use Exmerge to export the data from the old Exchange server
    and then import into the new Exchange server.

    a. Download and Install Exchange 2003: Mailbox Merge Wizard (ExMerge)

    b. Verify that the user account under which you run the Exchange Mailbox
    Merge program has the Receive As and Send As security permissions set to
    Allow for the Mailbox Store. Please refer to the following article:

    When the Mailbox Merge Program Tries to Open the Message Store, the
    Operation Is Unsuccessful

    Exmerge Does Not Work Unless You Have Receive As and Send As Permissions

    c. Execute Exmerge.exe and follow the prompt to export the mailboxes.

    - The Exmerge help document has more detailed information, please read
    it prior to performing this task.

    If you need further help, I would like to suggest that you post your
    questions to the following news groups:


    The above news groups are dedicated to SBS-related issues. I believe that
    you can get more informative suggestion there.
