I have a bit of a custom configuration and I am planning on migrating to SBS 2011 this weekend.

Current Network;

Two domains at Windows 2000 level with 2 way trust Exchange 2003 Mix of Win2000 WinNT Win2003


I have new T610 with SBS and Exchange 2010, I am trying to migrate the mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to this new server build, but when I use the migration wizard SBS cannot see the old domain(s) therefore it cannot coxist therefore I cannot seem to move the data.

Any ideas?>

The correct way to migrate from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 is to run the prep tool on 2003 and create an answer file, and then have them both on the same domain at the same time. Is this not what you've done? –  Mark Henderson Apr 26 '12 at 10:03
Is it even possible to migrate to SBS from a regular exchange installation? –  pjc50 Apr 26 '12 at 11:12
Thanks, Mark the problem I have is that the setup just now is full blown Serve 2003 and full Exchange 2003. –  bettsy583 May 2 '12 at 9:15
pjc50, I do hope so but it's not looking great I must say... –  bettsy583 May 2 '12 at 9:15
