Changing the Default Source/Target Exchange Account

Changing Default Exchange Account

The default Exchange Account (initially displayed on the Connection page of the Exchange server Properties) is set when you add the source or target organization to the migration project (see the Registering Source and Target Organizations section of the Migration Manager for Exchange User Guide for details). If necessary, you can change the default Exchange Account by clicking Modify on the General | Connection page in the properties of the corresponding server in the Migration Manager for Exchange Console.

Mailbox and calendar synchronization

The default Exchange Account for mailbox and calendar synchronization is specified when you create a corresponding synchronization job. To change it, use properties of the corresponding mailbox or calendar synchronization job.

Public folder synchronization

The default Exchange Account for public folder synchronization (initially displayed on the Connection page of the Exchange server Properties) is set when you add the source or target organization to the migration project (see the Registering Source and Target Organizations section of the Migration Manager for Exchange User Guide for details). If necessary, you can change the default Exchange Account for public folder synchronization by clicking Modify on the General | Connection page in the properties of the corresponding server in the Migration Manager for Exchange Console.

  1. In the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in, right-click the OU where the objects are located, and click Properties.
