Migrating to Exchange

Migration Tools Overview

Exchange includes the following migration tools.

Tool Description
Migration Wizard A stand-alone application that is installed on your computer during Exchange setup. Migration Wizard consists of two types of components: source extractors and a migration file importer. Source extractors copy directory information, messages, and calendar information from various messaging systems. They save the data in and intermediate file format that can be read by the migration file importer. After the information is in an intermediate file format, the migration file importer imports directory information to Active Directory and then adds messaging data to Information Store.You can perform both steps in this two-step process (extract and then import) the same time or in separate steps.

These extractors are not integrated into Migration Wizard, but after extraction, you can use the wizard to import the extracted files. The files are located on the Exchange CD in the Migrate folder.
