We currently are running Scalix 11.3. w/ Outlook 2003 clients. We have decided migrate from Scalix to Exchange 2007. We are having some issues in migrating user mailboxes. We are exporting the Scalix mailboxes through Outlook to a .PST file. We are attempting to import them in to Exchange from .PST files. I am receving an "Operation Failed" message.
I have also tried importing to Exchange via the Import-Mailbox command (PowerShell) with no success either. In the migration log it reports many errors in calendar appointments and certian folders are not importing. I am noticing certian folders are empty and re-occuring calendar appointments are missing.
Is there another way to do a migration? Should be be looking at an email migration tool for this task?
Any help would be great.
I have no idea what Scalix is (you should post in the 3rd party apps forum) but as for importing PST files with import-mailbox, be sure you've met the necessary requirements:
Scalix used to be HP OpenMail. It uses a client side connector to connect between Outlook and the Scalix Server. I did try to do an export then use the import-mailbox cmd. I have run into a problem. It seems that the encoding on the PST files is changed. The exchange server doesn't seem to like them. I can only assume that there is some problem with the encoding of the file format. When I do an import in the Exchange I am missing several items in folders and calendar items etc.
I have found a migration tool and I am evaulating it. Hopefully it will work!
