How to Migrate Exchange Server

How To Migrate conference room mailbox from 2003 to 2007


1. We are not using Auto Accept agent with Exchange 2003, so we need to manually login to the mailbox and remove Auto acceptance on calendar in NAPTG. To do this:

a. Tools ->Options -> Calendar options Resource scheduling

b. “Uncheck”  Automatically accept meeting requests and process cancellation



2. Now migrate the mailbox to Americas using Quest

3. Open Exchange management shell with “Run as Administrator”

4. Run the cmdlet to convert the mailbox to ROOM mailbox

(Note : Here we used "Tow700_Heritage_Conf_rm" and "Tow700_Marketing_Conf_rm"  as a Exchange server name replace this with your Server name)

Set-Mailbox "##TOW700_MARKETING_CONF_ROOM" -Type Room

5. Run the cmdlet to have the mailbox accept meetings automatically:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings "##TOW700_HERITAGE_CONF_RM" -AutomateProcessing AutoAccept

6. To maintain subject in meetings:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings "##TOW700_HERITAGE_CONF_RM" – DeleteSubject $False

7. To Process External meeting requests:

Set-MailboxCalendarSettings "##TOW700_HERITAGE_CONF_RM" – ProcessExternalMeetingMessages $True

8. To test the settings:

Get- MailboxCalendarSettings "##TOW700_MARKETING_CONF_ROOM" |fl

Get-Mailbox "##TOW700_MARKETING_CONF_ROOM" |ft Name, RecipientTypeDetails

Should be RoomMailbox

Get-MailboxCalendarSettings "##TOW700_HERITAGE_CONF_RM" |ft AutomateProcessing, DeleteSubject, ProcessExternalMeetingMessages

Should be AutoAccept, False, True

9. Login to the mailbox server on which the converted mailbox resides and Restart the “Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Assistants” service for these settings to take effect.

10. Grand permissions to self in EMC

11. Now, Configure Outlook for the Conference room mailbox.

12. Close Outlook and open with the Outlook switch  Outlook /resetfolders

13. This will fix the issue “You do not have permission to view this calendar”
