     I did this long back, if am correct you have to enable trust relationship 
between two servers.

Subject: [exchangelist] Test lab situation that is driving me nutty...

Hello all,
   I have setup a test lab to practice upgrading my NT 4.0 domain to AD.  I 
have a single Exchange 5.5 box with about  200 accounts setup and it is passing 
mail around great since the install.  I have also installed the first Exchange 
2003 server into the 5.5 organization.  I can create mailbox enabled accounts 
and pass mail back and forth to users on both servers with no issues.
   The Active Directory Connection Tool is giving no errors and the Active 
Directory Connector is working fine...  My problem is that I can not migrate 
the Mailboxes from Exchange 5.5 to the 2003 server...
   When I try, the logs indicate the following 'The Exchange 5.5 mailbox exists 
for the user, however directory replication has not completed.'  
I am able to view both servers through the Exchange 5.5 administrator and in 
Exchange Admin.  All changes I make replicate almost immediately.  Any ideas?  
I have googled and searched Microsoft support for the error and suggestions.  
Microsoft recommended a KB article that trouble shoots replication through 
ADC's in Exchange 2003 and 5.5 migration scenarios.  All tests passed.  
One last thing, I have logged in as the AD Root administrator and the Exchange 
5.5 Service Account and the error happens when logged in as either (I gave the 
AD Root admin permissions in the Exchange 5.5 organization).

Any ideas so I can actually get this up and running?
