We need to move 90 Exchange 5.5 users from an existing MS
Exchange 5.5 Environment (consisting of 1 Org, 2 Exchange
sites and 2 x Exchange servers) onto another MS Exchange
server located at another place.
A new Exchange 5.5 server had been configured with the
same OS (NT4 SP6a), same NT name but a different NT
The objective is to configure the Exchange 5.5 server so
that it is running with the same Private & Public
Information Stores and the same Global Address List
During certain stages of this moving project we will need
to reload the Public, Private and Directory information
stores from the customers source environment so that we
are always working with the current data.
We have built a new Exchange 5.5 server which is running
the same OS software and same levels of service pack (NT4
SP6a). We have installed Exchange 5.5 SP4 onto the server
and have run the install entering the same Org and site
information as the customers source migration environment.
We have obtained copies of the existing Public, Private
Information stores including the Exchange 5.5 directory
(GAL) on CD/DVD format.
We cannot configure the new Exchange 5.5 server so that
it is mirror of the source environment. As stated both
Exchange 5.5 environments are in completely different
Windows NT domains (separate networks, no direct LAN/WAN
connections, and no trust relationships between the two
We seem to be having problems with security and
permission's and we cannot configure the server to use
the same information stores and GAL.
Any guidelines is highly appreciated??
