Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

What is the best way to move users from Exchange 2003 to 2007.

 

Currently, I have moved all standard users to 2007, only the BB users remain on 2003.

The BESAdmin mailbox is still on 2003.

Do I move this first, resolve MAPI then move users with the Exchange Move Mailbox utility?

What about the cdo and mapi file versions, how do i handle those before/after migrating? 

 

Any help would be appreciated!!!!

 

Thanks!!!

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

Either / or.  I would just make sure to move them all in one fell swoop.  If you plan on moving people in groups such as one batch one weekend and another a different weekend etc ... move all the BB users in one migration period.

Re: Exchange 2003 to 2007 Migration

that file does not exist.

 

i did a full system search and only found 2 entries:

 

CDO.DLL in C:\Windows\SysWOW64

excdo.dll in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\Bin

 

Also found 2 mapi32.dll's

 

C:\Windows\system32

C:\Windows\SysWOW64

You found these after installing the cdo 121 components?
