Migration
Should be a simple migration from old 5.5 server to a new server which will house 2003. When going thorugh the checklists and tests on the 2003 CD, it gets stuck at the Organization and Site Names check saying that the site name "Traffic Planning & Design" contains an unsupported character. Is it easy to change the site name in 5.5 so this will work? Or is there something else I need to consider. In the end, I am looking for the easiest migration path. I have only 95 users on the system. I understand that there are multiple ways to do this. Regards, -Karl

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Realistically, for 95 users, Exmerge. I mean, are you creating a new AD? or is your 5.5 in a Win2K AD? Then Forest Prep, Domain Prep and install Exchange2K3, then just do the Emerge migration.

    I agree with Poomba. Worst case is you create a new exchange site in the AD with the new server then use exmerge on the 5.5 mailboxes and public folders to take them out of the 5.5 site and into to 2003 site. Depending on the size of the mailboxes this could take a little more time but it would be less of a headache.
