Exchange Migrator 2.x

When attempting to perform an intra-org migration from Exchange 5.5 (E5.5) to Exchange 2000 (E2K), Exchange Migrator wants to perform an inter-org migration if there is a period (.) in the the E5.5 organization name.

Cannot perform an intra-org migration between Exchange 5.5 (E5.5) and Exchange 2000 (E2K).

When joining an Exchange 2K server into an existing Exchange 5.5 organization the directory name is different.  E5.5 supports a period in the directory name, but E2K does not.  Because Exchange Migrator bases the migration scenario on the directory name it configures the migration as inter-org instead of intra-org.

As of Exchange Migrator (EM) 2.2 SP1 Hotfix 27949 and later, EM will allow you to override the migration scenario. Use this option during the project creation to ensure that EM is using the correct migration scenario.
