Exchange Migrator 2.x

Exchange Migrator incorrectly detects the migration scenario as intra-org.

I am migrating between organizations, but Exchange Migrator identifies the migration as an intra-org migration.

The source and target organizations have the same name.


To correct this issue:

  1. If you are migrating using an Exchange Migrator project, remove all objects from the problematic project and create a new Exchange Migrator project.
  2. In the Create a Migration Project wizard, on the Identify Migration Scenario page, check Override Migration Scenario.
  3. Select Migration between two different Exchange Organizations.
  4. Specify the other migration project parameters.
  5. Rerun the migration.


If the source and target organizations will also share the same SMTP name space, see the following NetIQ KB article:

How do I implement a migration between two different Microsoft Exchange Organizations with the same SMTP name space?
