This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

This question is related to server administration, and will be better suited for Server Fault. I'm migrating your question there. – Gnoupi Aug 17 '10 at 7:48

I used the info available at:

Powershell is pretty damn handy, scheduling exports and imports may make things much simpler for you if you only have one live install of exchange (that users actually connect to). Then again exporting your mailboxes to PST for a secondary backup is already a great step to be taking.

Exporting Mailboxes to PST for a secondary backup is not a great step to be taking. Exchange 2007/ 2010 has the ability to have multiple copies of a single database for HA. Additionally Backup Exec 2010 is "Exchange Aware" and can be used to restore individual items rather than an entire Database. Even for Legal Hold you have multiple options for dealing with those mailboxes rather than exporting the contents. – HostBits Apr 16 '11 at 15:57

Are the two servers in the same Exchange organization, or different ones?

If they are in the same org, then you can just move mailbox between them, either via EMC or PowerShell.

If they are in different orgs, you'll need to export data from one server to PST files and import them into the other one; have a look at the Export-Mailbox and Import-Mailbox cmdlets.
