Default Migrating from Ex2K to Ex2k3

Please Login to Remove!

Okay,

So yesterday I tried to move the BESadmin service mailbox from the old Exchange 2000 server to the Exchange 2003 server. This resulted in the Blackberry server going to status "unknown" services were running, but something wasn't right.

Ideas? Suggestions?

Did you use a tool what can handle hidden folders (hidden objects) and did you move that also?

Also, My BES server runs Server2K. From what I understand, I cannot install the Exchange 2003 Management tools on 2K, so must I first upgrade to 2K3?

or will the CDO.dll be sufficient?

I used the Exchange 2003 System Manager to move the account. It is supposed to move the whole mailbox, as it did for all of the real users.

ESM 2003 can be installed on Windows 2000. ESM 2000 cannot be installed on Windows 2003. If you are on Exchange 2003, then you will want to install ESM 2003 on the BES.

Does the Exchange 2003 server(s) have the proper permissions set up? Did you change the MAPI profile on the BES server (from Start Menu) to point to the new Exchange server? I'm assuming the new server is in the same domain as the prior server?

Score 2 gold stars for jibi.

I got spoiled not having to edit Outlook MAPI profiles for the users, I hadn't even considered this for BES.

Thanks again... Mebbe that tip should be on a FAQ somewhere. Then again, maybe it is in the README.
