How to: Migrate from Exchange 2007 SP2 to Exchange 2010

In this article I’m going to migrate my Exchange 2007 SP2 environment to Exchange 2010. This is my environment:

Server 1
Name: SRV-E2K10DC-01
OS: Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 x64
IP: 172.16.1.10
Roles: DC/DNS

Server 2
Name: SRV-E2K7-01
OS: Microsoft Windows 2008 SP2 x64
IP: 172.16.1.11
Roles: Exchange 2007 SP2 HT/CAS/MBX

Server 3
Name: SRV-E2K10-01
OS: Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 x64
IP: 172.16.1.12
Roles: Exchange 2010 HT/CAS/MBX

Domain FQDN: EXCHANGE.LOCAL
Forest Functional Level: Windows Server 2008 R2
Domain Functional Level: Windows Server 2008 R2

1.) First I’ve installed all the prerequisites for Exchange 2007 SP2 on server SRV-E2K7-01
Command: servermanagercmd -ip exchange-typical.xml
2.) Install all the prerequistes for Exchange 2010 on server SRV-E2K10-01
Command: servermanagercmd -ip exchange-typical.xml
3.) After rebooting server SRV-E2K7-01, you can install Exchange 2007 SP2
4.) After succesfully installing Exchange 2007 SP2, you can install Exchange 2010 on server SRV-E2K10-01
5.) Open the Exchange Management Console on server SRV-E2K7-01
6.) I’ve created some user account (100) and all mailbox enabled
7.) Open the Exchange Management Console on server SRV-E2K10-01
8.) As you can see, all the mailboxes are vissible!
9.) The next step is to move the mailboxes from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2010
10.) Return to the Exchange 2010 server and open the Exchange Management Console
11.) Navigate to Recipient Configuration, Mailbox
12.) Select the mailboxes you want to migrate and right-click
13.) Choose “New Local Move Request”
14.) Select the new Mailbox Database
15.) Wait until the users are migrated to the new Mailbox Server
16.) Select all the completed move requests and select Clear Move Request

The users are now migrated to the new Exchange 2010 environment. In the next post we are going to de-install the Exchange 2007 environment.
