In this lesson, Sharon provides a high-level overview of migrating public folders from Exchange on-premises to Exchange Online.
- [Instructor] When you move to Office 365…one of the things you may have to do…is actually migrate your public folders…from your legacy Exchange Servers on-prem.…In this lesson I'm gonna provide…a very high-level overview of those steps.…Before we get into that high-level overview…let's first take a look at what Exchange Servers…are supported for migration to Office 365.…Those servers include Exchange Server 2007…with Service Pack 3…and Rollup Update 15 or later,…and Exchange Server 2010 SP3 with RU8 or later.…
If you happen to be still using Exchange 2003…then the process will be a little different.…And I strongly encourage you…if you are still using 2003…you'll need to be doing this sooner than later.…Folders that are currently sitting on Exchange Server 2003…cannot be directly migrated to Office 365…or Exchange Online.…You must move all public folder database and replicates…to at least Exchange Server 2007…with SP3 and RU15 installed on it.…
At that point then you'll follow the same procedures.…And keep in mind that you cannot have…
