NetIQ Lubricates Exchange 2000 Migration

A network management vendor may have a solution for one of the biggest challenges NT administrators face – migrating their mail servers from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000. Exchange 2000’s heavy reliance on Active Directory may make the task a difficult one.

NetIQ Corp. is previewing their Exchange Migrator 1.o product at the Microsoft Exchange and Collaborations Solutions Conference in Dallas, Texas. The product offers wizards from moving Exchange 5.5 information to Exchange 2000 servers.

Granular migration – the ability to move individual mailboxes distribution lists, and public folders between machines – is the functionality NetIQ believes will sell the product.  NetIQ currently has products for transferring NT 4.0 users and domains to Active Directory, so the product is Exchange specific.

NetIQ expects to release the product in the first half of 2001. Because Exchange 2000 adoption is expected to be relatively slow – Exchange 2000 is a complex piece of software – NetIQ may not lose much market share from the lag time. - Christopher McConnell
