While it may be possible, I suspect you have Active Directory issues. A 
migration will likely not be successful if the active directory is not 
healthy.

Migration tool crashes when migrating from Lotus
I'm having problems with the migration tool when migrating some users. What happens is that once it starts up, the tool crashes with no error codes and the domino server crashes as well.

As I said, I can migrate the majority of users fine, but for some reason it does not like these users. If anyone has any suggestions or has come across something like this it would...

Exch 5.5 to 2003 ADMT \ ADC migration order question
Hi guys. I've been reading posts and performing tests in the run up to a Exchange 5.5 to 2003 intra-org migration. In everyone's opinion, which is the best order -> ADC (not enabled) -> ADMT to create new AD account (run in batches) -> ADClean to marry disabled place holder and new account (run in batches) -> movemailbox ( in batches as part of rolling migration) The above seems to have issues with no self rights so if you remove SIDhistory after the migration is done, wont the systems permission go bang as it's masking the lack of self rights?

How to keep SBS 2003 server running after migrating to SBS 2008
I've successfully migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 on a new machine. However, I have some apps running on the old server (ACT & Quickbooks) that I'd like to keep on this machine. The documentation states 'If you want to repurpose the Source Server, the simplest way is to reformat and install a new operating system'. What's the hard way? In other words, is there a way to get the machine back in a healthy state without installing a new operating system or reformatting the hard drive so I can use it to run these apps?

Co-existance during a migration and the GAL: mailbox-enable all users with redirection or mail-enable them first?
Hello, We're migrating a few hundred users from a non-MS mailsystem to E2k3 and for practical reasons, will only migrate a dozen or so users per day. That means the two systems will co-exist for a few months with messages flowing between them via SMTP. In order to maintain the GAL and shortcuts for users left on the old system during the migration, we plan not to delete migrated users' mailboxes; instead we'll redirect any mail to their new Exchange mailbox. On the E2k3 side, should we mailbox-enable all the users in one go in the beginning and redirect messages to the old mailb...

Before migration, the accounts all look fine as mail-enabled / disabled accounts in AD. When I perform the migration of mailboxes, using the migration wizard, everything goes smooth, however the primary SMTP address is changed to a secondary smtp address. The primary SMTP address doesn't get set until the RUS stamps it based on the recipient policy. What do I have to do t...
