Unity data migration/consolidation using COBRAS tool
Has anyone performed a Unity migration/consolidation using COBRAS successfully?
We need to consolidate then upgrade our Unity 4.2 servers as we are consolidating our Exchange 2003 servers to Exchange 2007. After consolidating Unity 4.2, we will upgrade to Unity 7 to support Exchange 2007.

If Site 1, 2, 3 are all in the same domain I would recommend using the GSM tool in Unity Tools Depot. Digital Network all the servers, and use GSM. Then use Cobras for the Call Handlers.
If the sites are all in separate domains, then, probably Cobras will be your best bet. There are limitations, and voicemails are marked as new when they are imported to the new site. (which can be an issue)
Throw about some more questions and let's what else we can come up with.
Create the dialing domain( one on one Unity server)
Then wait for AD replication to take place. Once AD is done, you should see on the other Unity servers, when you enable Digital Networking, the drop down menu for the Dialing domain.. If its not there, replication is not done yet.
Once it's done, then follow the GSM help file for setting up subscribers to move/to from other unity servers.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
1) Login into the CLI of the Publisher.
