    You must install Outlook on a separate machine from Exchange. It's not supported by Microsoft to have both Exchange and Outlook on the same box.

    1. As indicated above, microsoft does not support installing outlook on exchange server

    2. When you create a new windows account/exchange mailbox, the mailbox is provisioned but not created. Try sending the new account an email (which will force exchange to create the mailbox) then retry the migration.

    Default an other err. on next step

    hello;

    i installed MS outlook in a separate machine;

    I got the step "Source & Destination mailboxes", but when i click on the button "Object Picker", i got the message "the program can not open the dialog box required, because no place was found. close this windows and try again" (the message was in french i tried to translate it), after clicking on "ok" of this message window i got an other message window "failed to initialize Object Picker" ;

    after that i tried the button "Query Builder", it gives me the window "Active Directory query builder", if i click on "Base" button i got nothing, and if i click on "Create" button i got the window "user search, contact & group" with the message "the directory service is not available now" (msg. translated from french);



    think you.

    this happens when you are not logged on to the domain. make sure to logon to windows with an account that is on the same domain as the exchange server. this account must also have the approrpriate exchange permissions to access other peoples mailboxes.
