exchange 2013 public folder migrations
Exchange 2013 – Public Folder Migrations
  • Do you need to migrate this data?
    • SharePoint option
    • Shared Mailbox option – if calendar
  • Know how much data you have
    • This will impact migration timing
    • How many mailboxes are needed
  • Cutover to 2013
    • All users need to be migrated
    • Test users need to check:
      • Permissions
      • Content
  • Bad Characters
  • Bad / Corrupt Items
  • Failback to previous version and then move back to 2013\
  • If migration fails, what other options?
exchange 2013 cas coexistence
Exchange 2013 – CAS Coexistence
  • Exchange 2007 to 2013
    • Legacy namespace
    • Certificate change
    • URL changes needed
  • Exchange 2010 to 2013
    • No certificate changes
    • No Legacy Namespace
  • Legacy needs to be inside and outside
    • Inside for OWA and ActiveSync (redirection)
    • Outside for OWA. OWA will change the URL in your browser to Legacy if it detects your mailbox is on a older server (Exchange 2007)
