Moving mailboxes

If I move all the mailboxes from one exchange server to the other within an Exchange site do I need to do anything in the Unity to point to the right server that hosts the mailboxes. This new server has a diferent name from the original one.<br><br>Sean Poure<br>NEC-Voice Engineering<br>Sr. Systems Engineer<br>714 4846275<br>

Re: Moving mailboxes

If you're going to be moving a bunch of users, the best thing to do is to take the Unity server off line, move them all and then bring the Unity server back up.

there's nothing special you need to do on Unity to "point" us as the right mailstores sine we query the Exchange directory for the users' mailbox and IT always knows where that user is homed and we get a handle to the right mailstore.

If you don't take Unity off line, however, we will keep that handle to the old mailstore open which screws us AND Exchange up... you don't want to do that. You can move individual users one at a time by logging them out of in DOHPorpTest but if you're moving large numbers of users, it's always best to take Unity all the way off line while you do that.
