A blogcast series on upgrading your organization from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003

What’s a blogcast? As Eileen Brown said it:


"It's a mini Webcast, typically about 5 minutes long, and shows a visual demo of the technology.  Audio is embedded along with the .WMP file and you can view this on demand over and over again.  It differs from a podcast in as much as a podcast is audio only, and has enclosures that means that you can subscribe to a podcast feed to receive updated audio broadcasts when they are available.  Blogcasts (cast out, from a blog, typically) show short targeted demos and they're visual.  Some have PowerPoint, some only show the interface..."


Eileen has been posting blogcasts in this series for a while now and this particular series is now complete. Here is what is covered:

1: Reviewing the Exchange Organisation

2: Creating the trust 

3: Assigning appropriate rights

4: Exploring Deployment tools and checklists

5: Preparing Active Directory

6: Using the Active Directory Migration Tool

7: Configuring the Active Directory Connector

8: Checking the Migrated User accounts

9: Creating a connection agreement

10: Verifying synchronisation

11: Starting to Install Exchange 2003

12: Using the Public Folder migration tool

13: Moving user mailboxes

14: Verifying mailboxes have moved

15: Removing the last Exchange 5.5 Server

Taking the state of the Exchange 5.5 Support Lifecycle that we discussed before, this is very timely.
