Active Directory Migration Tool again

Post by Jeremy Churc » Fri, 19 Apr 2002 03:23:10



What is the best way to transfer mailboxes from an NT4 domain running
Exchange 5.5 to a Win2k Domain with Exchange 2000?  Would each workstation
have to be touched if the name of the Exchange server changes (I'm assuming
yes)?  Will the ADMT automatically create mailboxes for new users that are
migrated: is this an option?  Or will I have to manually create the
mailboxes after the users are migrated using the ADMT?  Is ExMerge the best
tool to use for a small network (50 users) or is there a better tool for
this migration?  If anyone needs more information, let me know.

Any Help would be appreciated.

Thanks

ADMT is not for Exchange Migration. I don't know if that capability has been
added to the rumored ADMT2.0

Exmerge will come in handy. But, if I were you, I'd read this first:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/it...
ns/guide/plan/p_12_tt1.asp
URLs will wrap!

Also, the Exchange NG is a better place to get a more useful response.

Got it.  Does the ADMT create a mailbox for the users that are being
migrated, or do those have to be created manually?  I'm not talking about
migrating the mailboxes, just creating them in the new domain.

That would be TOO easy. Unfortunately, this is not possible with the ADMT I
know. Again, maybe the 2.0 can do it when it finally arrives.

no major functinality change is planned for admt v2  exchange migrtion, from
that of v1.

v1 behavior is only to re-acl existing exch 5.5 mailboxes for users that
have been migrated using admt.  The mailboxes themselves are not migrated
from server to server.

The problem that I have is that the Exchange 5.5 server is on an NT4 server
that we really don't want to upgrade to Win2k.  We were going to use ExMerge
anyway, but I didn't want to have to go into Active Directory and touch
every user to give them a mailbox.  It looks like we're going to have to do
that anyway, even though we were able to automate the creating of the users.
Oh well.  I guess that's life.  ADMT will still save us a lot of time on the
migration of workstations and other things.

Thanks all for you help

Jeremy,

Done this several times and it depends on what your trying to achieve. Are
you going for a new W2K Forest and a new Exchange 2000 Organisation ?  If so
you want to do something similar to below: -

Your new Exchange 2000 Org name must be different from 5.5

(1) Use the AMDT to migrate the users / groups from NT 4 to W2K.  Ensure
that you migrate the SID History.  This will ensure that permissions are
retained.  You can alway clean up SID history at the end of the migration.

(2) Clean up Exchange 5.5 data since certain things cannot be migrated (e.g.
Inbox Rules, encrypted messages)

(3) Identify resource mailboxes ( a user account can only have one mailbox
associated with it).  Use the NTDSNoMatch utility)

(4) Install ADC from the Exchange SP2 Disk and go for an
Inter-organisational name.  This will bring across all the Exchange info and
make users mail-enabled.

(5) Use Sp2 Exchange 2000 Migration tool to migrate users mailboxes.  This
is a really good util.

(6) Your mailboxes will now be mailbox-enabled.

(7) Use modprof or newprof to re-create Outlook profiles.

Hope this helps

Take a look at Mailbox Migration Manager, Demo will move 15 mailboxes.
We've used for 5.5 Site moves.
They say the support E2K moves as well......"Like Exmerge on Steroids"

1. Migration using the active Directory Migration Tool

hi,

Im having problems trying to use the ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool)

when I try to use it from my source domain to migrate users to the source
domain, I got a message error on the log that explains that such operation
should be done from the destination domain for securit purposes. The problem
is, that when I try to do it from the destination domain, I when I try to
browse the source domain for the accounts to be migrated, I take a while,
then it shows up the destination domain (like I can't contact the source
domain).

The Domain admins group of my destination domain is already a member of the
Administrators group of my source domain (I did this from my source domain).
Of course that it means that I have the trust relationships well configured.

But when I try to do the same thing on the destination domain, fox eample --
add the source domain "Domain Admins" group to the destination domain
Administrators group, I get the following error when trying to browse the
source domain AD:

No authority could be contacted for authentification

Am I doing something wrong?

Cheers,
 Pedro
