How do I migrate Exchange servers from the source to a target domain?
Can I migrate an Exchange server from the source to a target domain?

Exchange Migrator 2.x
It is not possible to move, rename, or migrate a physical Exchange server from one organization to another or one domain to another. This has to do with the way Exchange prepares the environment at the time of installation/configuration.
The solution is to build a new Exchange server in the target environment, and then use Exchange Migrator to move the old mailboxes from the source Exchange server to target Exchange server.
For more information about the scenarios Exchange Migrator supports, see the following related KB articles:
