Moving Mailboxes
Hi there, I am after some advice to a strange problem. I have taken on a new role with a company and we have two exchange servers, one of which i need to decommission. My problem is i want to move all the Mailboxes off Server2 but I don't have the option of Server1 in the Move Mailbox wizard? I am far from an Exchange wiz but have a little experience and have never come across this before? I can see the server fine in First Administrative>Servers. It is Exchange 2000 and Server1 is set up as front end and Server2 backend. Hopefully i havent missed something very simple and Many thanks in advance! Matt

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

You will need to change the front-end server to back-end server to host mailboxes. This is the reason you don’t see the migration wzard. This change is a simple option to “UNCHECK” with the ESM gui via properties (general tab) of SERVER1.
