Unity upgrade from VM to UM

I have an ICS7750 which was working on VM, we have now decided to go for UM, is this an easy process or am I better of formatting the SPE and starting from fresh

Re: Unity upgrade from VM to UM

The tricky bit for going from VM only to a UM deployment is dealing with the account mappings in the new directory you'll be installing into. The easiest way to approach this is to use DiRT to backup your current VM system, install a fresh UM system into the directory/mailstore you want and then do a DiRT restore. If the aliases of the folks you had on your VM system match those users on the UM system, you're home free. If not, things get a little messier.

Here's a white paper that talks about planning ahead for such a migration (sounds like the train left the station on that count already) but has some good info in it anyway:
