Moving Mailboxes from 5.5 SP2 to SP3 on Win2000
by DevX Pro
I have an Exchange 5.5 installation on a Windows 2000 box with SP3, and I want to move approximately 1,500 mailboxes there from am Exchange 5.5 SP2 box on Windows NT 4. What is the best way and do I need to upgrade the existing box to SP3 before moving the mailboxes? We were considering just restoring the databases to the new server; is that a possibility?

Moving Users to a New Organization and Site
by DevX Pro
I have about 50 users on an "old" Exchange Server (version 5.0 SP2), and I need to move them to a new server. The problem is that the new server must belong to a different organization and must have a different site name from the old, and also it is running Exchange Server 5.5 (SP2 or maybe 3). I think the best way to approach this is by using ExMerge to produce .PST files and then import them onto the new server. (I intend to export the recipient list and import them to the new server). What is the best, cleanest way of conducting the upgrade? If I use EXMERGE, does it destroy the data on the old server?

Is Exchange the Answer?
by DevX Pro
I am setting up a new post office SYS. We have five sites over the United Kingdom. Is Exchange the right product to use? We would require replication of all addresses on each site. Each site would have to administer its own address, although it should be possible to administer from one location if needed. All internal e-mail should stay in the WAN; all external e-mail should go out to a Web site hoster, who would have all 500 addresses set up. Also, there might be one or two sites outside the UK, which would also need to replicate their addresses to the UK site through the Web. Can you offer any help? (We have Windows 95/98 and Windows NT on Novell.)

Installing Exchange 5.5 Upgrade on New Server
by DevX Pro
I have Exchange 5.0 running on a server that has become too small to do everything asked of it. I bought Exchange 5.5 Upgrade and a totally new copy of NT 4.0 for a new server. What I was going to do is install 5.5 on the new server and then move over mailboxes from the machine that has Exchange 5.0 on it. What I did not know is that installing the 5.2 Upgrade is not as simple as starting the install on a new machine and then putting in the version-5.0 CD-ROM to prove I have a legal copy. Version 5.5 simply does not install when it does not see a previous version of Exchange. So I decided to install 5.0 on the new machine and then tell it to join the existing site. It started installing OK and said it was replicating directories. It then stopped and said it could not continue and to look at the event log. The event log had several entries similar to this: Event ID 286 Unable to create object /o=xxxx/ou=xxxx.org/cn=configuration/cn=addressing/_ cn=display-templates/cn:409 because one or more_ objects in the directory path /o=xxxx/ou=xxxx.org/cn=configuration/cn=addressing/_ cn=display-templates do not exist. It seems as though I'm eligible for an upgrade copy of Exchange because once the new server is running OK, the original server with 5.0 is going to be stripped of Exchange. But how do I get everything onto the new server? I only have these two servers and one domain. The original server at this time is a PDC and the new one is a BDC. My goal is to get Exchange, as well as the other applications, completely off the original machine. When things are running smoothly, I will remove Exchange from the original machine and promote the BDC to a PDC, while demoting the original machine to a BDC. Does this make sense?
Getting Started with Exchange
by DevX Pro
I am in the process of installing Exchange 5.5 for the first time. I need some help understanding the basic concepts of this system. How do I get the server and client (Outlook 2000) to talk to each other? I have installed the server and am not having much luck getting the Outlook client to connect to Exchange. (It is logged into the NT server.)
