Moving mailboxes between servers

I need to move exchange 2000 sp3 from one server to the other at one of our
small offices, there are about 14 users currently using it, it's also the

After some research, I found this article, it's based on Ed Crowley's
5.5 Exchange 2000 Move Server Method.

I'm currently staging this on two separate servers, when I got to this step:

9. Change the default Public Store for the existing Exchange server to the
new Exchange Server. This is done on the General tab of the Mailbox Store in
the Exchange System Manager. Once this change is completed all new public
folders created by users on this mailbox store will be created on the new
server. (Repeat this for each mailbox store defined).

Nothing happened, the mailboxes didn't replicate, I gave it a few hours, and
nothing. Should it have replicated the mailboxes instantly? Has anybody
tried this method? Is there a better method?

you can't replicate the mailboxes - the only thing you can replicate are the
public folders.

The way to move the mailboxes from one server to another is by using active
directory users and computers. Rightclick a user whose mailbox you want to
move and select exchange tasks.
