Hi,

hints how to accomplish that?
Any suggestions?

How to move E2K between 2 AD Forests?

All E2K information is stored in the CONFIGURATION container in Active
Directory. There can only be one configuration container per AD forest.

Consequently there is no MS supported way to move Exchange 2000 to another
forest. Depending on the number of servers you have, the best alternative
is to do a re-install into the new forest and restore the stores from
backup.

Hope that helps

Power down server

Insert Windows 2000 Server Disk

Delete all existing partitions

Reinstall Windows 2000

Install Exchange 2000

In other words, there is no way. The "forest" is the thing that holds all of
the email accounts. If you move forests, then you no longer have the
associated accounts.

1. Moving IS from one Forest to another and re-associating AD accounts

I need to find out how to take the IS from one Exchange installation in its
own domain/forest and mount it onto a totally new Exchange installation in a
new domain/forest and associate the user accounts in the new domain with the
mailboxes in the old IS. I know there is a tool available, but cannot find
out any info about it, as I can't remember what it is called.

Thanks for the help,
Josh
