  • Hi Tulip,


    Kindly clarify what excatly ultimately your goal is....


    One idea I am getting that you wants to do Domain migration like from abc.com to xyz.com,coz all the above steps required for domain migration.Those steps are absolutely right some missed out.


    And subject line says ex2k3 to ex2k7 migration.Both are two different things alltogether.


    If you wants to achive ex2k3 to ex2k7 migration....Only option is Exchange 2k7 transtioning.


    Tell me what you wants to achieve,i am having solutions for both the things.
