I have a client that is currently 2 organisations but one of them wants to
become completely independent and split off from the other. Currently they share
the same AD domain, Exchange server, sharepoint, file servers, etc.
I have been asked to set them up with a new AD forest\domain and migrate the
user accounts to the new forest\domain. This is phase 1 in the rather large
migration project. Once users and computers have been migrated I will then be
looking at migrating Exchange and Sharepoint over (and the other services) as
phase 2 - not straight away so mailboxes and sharepoint resources will be
accessed from the new accounts in an interim period.
My question to all out there is (1) Does anyone see any issues with Exchange
permissions (Exchange 2007) once user accounts are migrated? I was planning on
resetting permissions on mailboxes to give the new accounts access via the
Forest trust (2) How about sharepoint? Is this a simple procedure of configuring
permissions in the same way on team sites etc?
I have heard that Exchange 2007 can be a real pain in a cross-forest
scenario. Any advice, tips or gotchas to look out for would be much
