Exchange Migration from 2003 to 2010 -- RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    First my apologies if I am in the incorrect forum.

    I am in the process of getting ready for an Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 migration.

    Currently here is what I have:

    Windows Server 2003 - 32Bit - Domain Controller - 1

    Windows Server 2003 - 32Bit - Domain Controller - 2

    Exchange 2003 Server - 32Bit


    Windows Server 2008 - 64Bit - Domain Controller

    Exchange 2010 Server - 64Bit


    I would like to use ADUC to move the mailboxes from E2003 to E2010.  But I was told I would have to use the Powershell interface to move the mailboxes.  Is there anyway that I can use the ADUC instead of the Powershell gui?

    If I cannot use ADUC, and use the Powershell, does this have to do with the two different domain controllers, using a 32Bit DC and 64Bit DC?  Does this have to do with the FSMO roles?  Would it help if I move the FSMO roles to the 64Bit DC, in order to use the ADUC?  Or am I reaching here?

    I am not as well versed in the AD\Exchange migration areas.  Any feedback would be great!

    Many thanks!
