They wanted to move mailboxes from Small Business Server 2003 to Small Business Server 2011. The migration was associated with considerable effort; namely, it required a laborious, manual export of users' mailboxes and an equally time- and resource-consuming import of the mailboxes into Outlooks on the target server side. A pre-synchronization was not possible, so the administrator had little maneuvering room for the preparation of the operation.
Chief of Certified IT, Christian Enderle, found CodeTwo Exchange Migration through the Xing network. His first impression of the software was positive, because in contrast to the previous option you only had to provide credentials to access the source and target server, and set up the rights for the Exchange mailboxes. "The direct cost of the process is reduced by at least 80%, which on subsequent migrations is likely to be even further reduced, since initial training in operating the program generally takes a moment longer." - says Enderle. "I definitely recommend CodeTwo Exchange Migration. The support is excellent and the possibility of a pre-synchronization allows the administrator to fully concentrate, in the critical stage of the server switch, on the important things. Afterwards, the program automatically pulls all the newly created items to the new server." - added Enderle.
