Update: Content can be viewed here: http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/MEC/2014/DMI302, but my notes, which included links to the scripts I talk about were removed. Go here: http://1drv.ms/1Gu4sfx to get the full copy of my PPT, with notes.
I just got my acceptance letter that my “Cross forest migrations: Free or 3rd party
tools?” session was accepted for MEC 2014. MEC will be in Austin, TX 3/31 – 4/2 and will have a near exclusive focus on Exchange and Office 365. Most of the speakers will be non-Microsoft, so you will get a lot of real world sessions with very little marketing spin. There will also be many of the Exchange product team people there from Microsoft also speaking.
So if you run Exchange in your environment or use Office 365 for your organization this is the conference to come to! Register now and get more details at: http://www.iammec.com/
This session will cover the tool and steps required to migrate from an Exchange 2003 or higher to Exchange 2013 in another forest. A high-level outline of the steps, scripts, Microsoft tools, and notes from the fields will be discussed. In addition, options for organizations still on Exchange 2003, which isn’t supported by built-in scripts
and tools with Exchange 2013, will be covered.
Discussion will cover the scripts included with Exchange 2013 to migrate mailboxes across forests and how to migrate contacts, groups, policies, Public Folders, and other settings that aren’t migrated by those scripts. The main focus will be the many additional steps, solutions, and scripts required to do a full fidelity migration.
This session will mainly focus on the needs of small to medium companies (< 1,000s of mailboxes). Information discussed will be helpful to any size organization that needs to do a cross forest migration.
