We have 2 7845I servers, one installed Unity (admin tools only for Exhagne)and the other is the Message store Ex2k. Now We try to take the Exchange server for another purpose and would like to make the message store back to Unity's box(from offbox to inbox), My supposed procedures are

1. Reinstall Exchange 2000 on the Unity as "typical" intall

2 use "message store manager" to change the message store from the offbox ex2k to the ex2k in Unity's belly. Please help if you are aware how to exactly? Thank you Matthew

I dont see why you cant Think of it as if you were migrating Unity messaging store to a new server.


Install Exchange on the Unity server, configure it to be in the same Exchange Org as your other Exchange server. Use the Unity tools to move users from store to another. You will have to follow the same Permissions wizards instructions, etc.

Then follow these instructions from Ginger:

Should get you going in the right direction. Not sure why you would not just keep it off box. If its just to free up a server, I hope the server is worth your time to do this move.
