Upgrading from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    I have two exchange serveres 2007 SP3 and they are ruining on Server 2008 Ent and 2008 R2 Ent.

    I setup a server 2012 R2 and installed an exchange 2013 on it and a friend of mine helped me on setting up the new exchange server and migrating the mailboxes.

    Now all the mail boxes are transferred to the 2013,  and based on his recommendation I am in the stage of uninstalling exchange 2007 from my old servers.

    I am reading about the process but based on the link below I have to do more things before uninstalling

    http://www.exchangedictionary.com/articles/clean-uninstallation-of-exchange-2010-mailbox-server-guide

    the instruction is for exchange 2010 and some shell commands are not working on shell 2007

    I also found the link below:

    http://blogs.technet.com/b/meamcs/archive/2013/07/25/part-1-step-by-step-exchange-2007-to-2013-migration.aspx

    and I think I am at the stage 8 or 9, but I am not sure and also I do not know what to do if I am at the stage 8

    Would you please advise me what shall I do to finish up the project or give me a link for it.

    I have searched a lot but I was not able to find a straight forward instruction.

    Thank you in Advance

  • Is it showing only in exchage 2013 or showing on both exchange?

    If you have PF on both just export your PF from exchange 2007 and create new PF in 2013 and import to save time

  • You mean you are stuck in moving public folder?

  • Find out if you have public folders in Exchange 2007 world. If not, you can skip that step.

    You cannot have Outlook 2003 or earlier clients once the mailbox is moved to 2013.

    but I am not sure if I am in the step of moving public folders or not. I have finished the migration of all mailboxes.

    When I click on "Servers" I can see the results below:

  • Please go ahead with the movement of PF.

    If it is not complete it will prompt you error when uninstalling exchange2007
