I need your help moving a number of mailboxes that I have from one forest to another. I am looking to move several domains but I am aware of the fact that when moving mailboxes across forest, the STMP email addresses are created however the format of [email protected] is used in generation of the primary since domain. Local is the default address policy.
I would like to avoid this situation of changing to particular domain. Is this possible and if it is possible how can it be done?
Moving mailboxes creating STMP email addresses
There are different steps for every type of exchange server. I am only telling you about the exchange server 2007 sp1. If you have the RTM version or any other, please refer to this link.
You must have a user account in your old forest; use the ADMT v3 to move it to the migrating forest. ADMT is basically the Active Directory Migration Tool.
Run the following command where you have the exchange server 2007 move-mailbox command line.
$SourceCredential = Get-Credential
This will create a credential source.
Now you will be asked for the credentials. Use any account for it.
Now run the mail box move command.
See the output generated by the command to be sure that the process has completed
