Back Office 4.5 & Exchange 5.5 Server migration to Win 2003 & Exchange 2003 Server
Is it possible to migrate a Back Office & Exchange 5.5 server to
Win2k3 & Exchange 2003 and keep our NT 4.0 Domain enviroment.
This is what we have:
Winnt 4.0 PDC
Winnt 4.0 BDC
Back Office 4.5 w/ Exchange 5.5 (we want to eliminate this machine!!!)
We have a seperate Win2k3 machine ready but not joined to the domain
yet. Do we have to upgrade our Winnt 4.0 PDC aswell to Win2k3 or will
our new Win2k3 w/ Exchange 2k3 fit in well in the NT 4.0 domain? What
options & steps would be best to migrate?
Thanks ahead of time,

...Exchange Server in wrong OU
Our previous network admin migrated our Exchange 2003 Server to new
hardware, but failed to place the new Exchaneg server in the proper OU in
Because of this, security policies in ADUC for our network server are not
being applied to this server, it currently resides in the built in Computers
We would like to move this server to the correct OU.
What will this affect? Can this server simply be moved or will it be
necssary to make additional changes?
You can move the Exchange server to the correct OU but you have to restart

I've looked through quite a few posts here, read a lot of things and still I
am not 100% of the best way to go about this scenario.
One EX 5.5 server at SP3 on W2K SP3, single AD domain in the forest.
Whats the best method to get from this to Exchange Server 2003 on Windows
Is is to install Exchange Server 2003 on the Windows Server 2003 box, create
a new Exchange Server 2003 organization and then use the Migration Wizard?
Or is it soemthing else?
I would recommend this procedure,

Their a couple of ways if outlook will still run you can start outlook and
go to the file menu and select Import and Export then select Export to a

select the top item in the list (usually this will be labeled Personal

Our current settings is the following:
2 x DC running W2K. One also runs DHCP server and the other one runs DNS
Exchange 2000 Back-end installed on one of the DC
Exchange 2000 Front-end installed on a standalone W2K server on DMZ
We would like to upgrade to a W2K3 domain and Exchange 2003.
All the hardware will be replaced.
This time, we will have 2 servers dedicated to DC roles and Exchange 2003
will be installed on a standalone W2K3 server.
What would be the best steps to allow a smooth upgrade, as transparent to
the users as possible and with the minimum risks for me!

I am being asked if we can take an external list or database (such as
access or excel) and import this list of addresses into exchange to
create a distribution list in the GAL. I am not sure this can be done. I
looked into this a few years back and came up empty. But I thought I
would ask again.
As far as I know, a public DL can only be setup from choosing names from
the GAL, but I may be incorrect here.
Any info will be appreciated.
This should work just fine. When you run your import of the list (csv
format), you would need to specify to create Custom Recipients, which w...FRX exchange rate upload

Just set up OfficeXP on a computer. Now when outlook is open, I get a
dialog that says "Microsoft Exchange" as the only choice. I just click okay
and my outlook comes up fine. Why do I get this dialog?
I think I had this problem once before and it has to do with the way it was
set up. I belive it was set up to use MS Exchange. MS Exchange is not
being used. I need to convert it. I had to do this once before and
remember it to be easy, but I don't remember what I had to do.
Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I am trying to set up some news group feeds to come from
news.microsoft.com. I have the remote server set up as a peer both and have
the news groups I want to get. But for some reason nothing happens. Any
ideas as to why
You won't be able to set it up that way. news.microsoft.com only allows
select servers to use it as a feed source. You can try checking if your ISP
is set up to receive those feeds and will allow you to add them as a peer.
Otherwise, just use Outlook Express for your newsgroups.

I thought that the 16GB limit for the entire store on Exchange 2000 was
adding up the mailbox + public folders (priv.edb, priv.stm, pub.edb,

a total of 32GB.
Can someone confirm this for a fact? It would solve a lot of problems for
me, as I have a big public folder that I keep unnecessarily pruning just to
keep both mailboxes and public folders together within the 16GB limit.
