    Default ZCS Migration Wizard on Exchange 2003

    Last week our organizations Exchange Server went down, so we are looking for a way to get off of it. After spending 36+ hours fixing a corrupted .edb database, we have decided that Microsoft is not the direction we want to go in. Along comes Zimbra, and I begin testing it. While running the ZCS Migration Wizard on our eight year old Exchange 2003, everything seems to go fine up to the last section, "Import In Progress". It has been sitting there for about a half an hour "importing" a mailbox that only has 1 sent and 1 received message.

    One thing about our domain is, users logon to user@domain.com but all of their mailboxes are user@longdomain.com. Basically, internally we have a domain name, but the prior admin did not purchase that domain name. By the time we went to purchase the domain name we use internally, someone else already had it.

    The one-step importation tool also fails to work for me on the Exchange 2003 side. While running the Migration Wizard from the Zimbra Web Administration Interface, it runs, and spits out the ZCSMigrationWizard and the XML file describing the users to import. Upon running that XML file on the Windows Box, it spits out a log that looks like this:

    Currently Running Versions:

    Microsoft Windows Server Standard Edition Service Pack 2
    Microsoft Exchange 2003 Service Pack 2

    ZCS Network 7.2 for Ubuntu 10.04 on Ubuntu 10.04

    Are you actually running the Migration Wizard on a client (you should be) and not the Exchange Server itself?

    Ok that works for a 1 by 1 import, how about a domain wide import? The users in my organization have trouble with the simplest of tasks, there is no way I could put the responsibility of running ZCS Migration Wizard on their shoulders. Is there a tool that I can run which will import everything, DOMAIN-WIDE?!?!??!?

    Thank you for clarifying that for me.

    The migration tool should migrate all users from the Exchange server to Zimbra, just follow the wizard and specify what you want imported in the initial query.
