NT4 Domain w/ Exchange 5.5 -> SBS2000
A client of mine has an existing NT4 domain and has
been using Exchange 5.5 for quite some time. My basic
problem is that the server is reporting that it doesn't
support setting up trusts between domains. Is their a
workaround for this?
I need to migrate all of their account info over to
their new SBS2000, and I've read all the docs that I can
find on the Exchange Migration tool and the Active
Directory Migration Tool. The Exchange Migration tool
doesn't work correctly because the new mailboxes have
their security settings messed up since the old domain was
NT4. (That is a known limitation.) And the solution of
using the Active Directory Migration tool won't work since
I can't initiate a trust between the old and new domains.
Migrating their existing mailboxes and old messages
is critical. Are their any other ways to move this data?
My only other idea is to bring a temporary full Win2K
server up, perform the full migration then just do an
Exchange migration between the SBS and the 2K servers
since that is supported. The other stuff I'll just have
to do by hand, but since there are only 10 users it isn't
a big deal.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
