    Default [SOLVED] Migration from Exchange 2010

    Our business is currently running ms exchange 2010. The installation went very smoothly on Ubuntu and I quickly had a number of mailboxes setup. I ran into huge problems trying to transfer everything over from the exchange server to Zimbra.

    * Import tools fail. The PST import tool actually crashes Zimbra and appears to cause corruption.
    * For some reason when using the outlook connector it doesn't import any emails or contacts you copy into the folders. It does appear to copy calendar items.

    Essentially everything I try does not work. I realize that nowhere does it say these tools support outlook/exchange 2010. Are there plans to add support in the near future? Is there another way that I'm missing to import the information?

    Without details of the problems and the errors you're having it's impossible to give you any advice, you also haven't given any details of the Zimbra version and release that you have installed.

    I'm back to try again. Other projects came forth. I did not post error details because I assumed that Zimbra would have tried their import products on Exchange 2010 and expected to get a message along the lines of "We're working on it". I'm using the most recent version of Zimbra (7.00 GA 3077 on Ubuntu 64).


    Exact error messages:
    Exchange Migration Wizard - after clicking "Launch Profile Chooser":
    "MAPILogonEx Failed: 80004005"

    The PST Importer simply reports:
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Importing messages
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Clearing internal progress log entries
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Entries cleared
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Deleting mapi folder list
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Error while importing PST <>: COM Exception. Source : Microsoft Outlook Exception occurred.
    08-02-2011 00:56:05 [4112]: Too many items failed, exiting

    On the plus side this no longer kills Zimbra so that bug has been resolved.

    I believe the "MAPILogonEx Failed: 80004005" error is caused by attempting to run Outlook/Exchange Migration Wizard on the actual Exchange server.

    See this thread...
    [SOLVED] Exchange Migration Wizard not copying mails

    And these results turfed up from a google search...
    Exchange and Outlook On The Same Machine - SGriffin's MAPI Internals - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
    Microsoft does not support installing Exchange Server components and Outlook on the same computer

    The error you are seeing is nothing to do with Zimbra. Microsoft highly discourages using Outlook on the actual Exchange server. I believe Exchange Server doesn't have the necessary binaries/API to actually run Outlook.
    All this was certainly the case with previous versions of Exchange/Outlook, not sure about 2010. There are probably ways round it but I didn't want to bork up our Exchange server. I found this out when looking to migrate from SBS 2003 a year or so from a remote location.

    Try installing Outlook and setup a profile on a different machine to the Exchange Server then run the Migration Wizard from there.

    Tried yet again.

    Exchange Importer now mentions that it is not compatible with Exchange 2010 (or more specifically that it is only compatible with Exchange 2003/2007).

    PST Importer with Outlook 2010 also does not work. Still reports "COM Exception. Source : Microsoft Outlook Exception occurred." with no further details.

    Uninstalled Office 2010 and installed an old version of office 2007. PST importer appears to be working. It's going to be a pain to import them all one by one.
