Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 Migration

Hello all, been a while since I last posted. I’ve been pulled away from Exchange for a while, and it didn’t seem to make much sense to post non-Exchange related topics to a website named Fortunately though, I’ve recently started a quick-turnaround Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 migration project that I hope to complete in the next few days. Its always interesting to go back to Exchange 2007, especially now – thirteen years after it debuted and change the Exchange world. Exchange 2010 would really become the standard-bearer a few years later of course, but Exchange 2007 is where the new hotness started.

So far I’ve been able to get to get the discovery portion of the migration completed, and since this is a single server environment that process went pretty quick. Over the years I’ve built a script that runs just about every relevant PowerShell cmdlet related to Exchange and AD and exports all that data into nice CSVs and TXT files that allow me to quickly identify problems in the environment and configure new servers. Of course I hold that script pretty close to the vest, but you can find a lot of other handy scripts here

As I work through this migration and issues pop up I’ll try to post about them. A lot of the Exchange 2007 information has disappeared from the web but its still out there, so hopefully my experiences on this project can help someone else out.
