SBS Cross Forest Migration Connectors RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on an email migration from SBS 2008 (Exchange 2007) to Excahnge 2016. We are using a third party tool to cut out the 2nd hop and go straight to Exchange 2016. This will be a cross-forest migration and there will be no domain trust (since SBS won't allow them).

    The Exchange 2007 should continue to receive the email until the migration is complete and the clients are all migrated to the new domain. The intent is to migrate all the email in the background, cutover all users to the new Exchange server, then change the DNS settings and firewall forwarding rules to the new Exchange server on the day of the cutover.

    I am having a hard time figuring out what the send/receive connectors should look like to have mail flow between the old internal domain (old.local) and the new internal domain (ad.new.org) during the migration.

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi Bhimel,

    Per my knowledge, since these are two different domains, it should look like mail flow between inside and outside, you just make sure the internet mail flow works as expect in each domain, that would be ok.
