I'd say if you're going to be in that mode for 3-4 months, that you should
spend some time properly setting expectations.  You will likely have some
changes in client operations, look and feel to the clients and possibly some
interoperability issues that will show up eventually (often as the users
become more confident and look to use more features). As long as they expect
it, it might be more tolerable during that time.

Dear Mulnick,

   Thanks for your valuable comments, any how I will check this before
migrating in production environment.

As u say "don't stay in migration mode for long time" in our case we are
going to migrate some 3000+ users in a batch of some 100/150 at a time. So
we are in need to be in this mode at least for 3 or 4 months. Any comment on
this.

 

 

Any how once again thanks for your ideas and comments.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Manickam Annamalai

http://www.MSExchange.org/

Dear all,

   We are in the process of migrating resources from the existing exchange
5.5 organization to a new exchange 2003 organization.

We require the following:

1) Co-existence between the Exchange 5.5 Org and Exchange 2003 Org with
calendaring - we plan to use inter-org replication tool (EXCHSYNC) to
replicate free/busy and public folders!!!!! 

              - Your comments on it. Is it possible? and your
suggestions....[Mulnick, Al] It's possible and should work fine.
Suggestion?  Don't stay in the migration mode any longer than absolutely
necessary to cut down on troubleshooting user questions problems etc.  

2) GAL Synchronization - ADC inter-org CA 

               - Your comment and suggestions or any other tools
available.[Mulnick, Al]  Works fine.  This is great, but as above, don't
stay in this mode any longer than you have to.  You have a lot of moving
pieces to your mail system and troubleshooting time will increase.   

3) We would like to promote Exchange 2k3 org to Native Mode to take maximum
benefits. 

             - When can we switch the mode - Is it possible to promote at
initial stage before migration or switch can be done only after the
migration.

             - Does this have any effect on inter-operability discussed
above (will SRS required???)[Mulnick, Al]  Have you read what the SRS does
for you?  Take a look at the docs and compare to the approach you're taking.
Native mode won't make a difference to you and would probably be just fine.
Don't forget to test all of this :) 

 

Thanks in advance for your reply
