Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

(OP)
I am unable to find any clear documentation to upgrade MM 5.2 to AAM ?

current setup is MSS and 2 x MAS

anyone can help ?

RE: Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

That is because there not a clear upgrade path. If you want more info let me know. You install a new AAM and then use message move from Mutare or have the users setup their new mailboxes.

RE: Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

We migrate our users with ProVision, I'm not aware of any free tools available to customers that will truly migrate the data. Typically our customers (if they don't have us migrate them) will just build the mailboxes again from scratch.

Thanks guys

as per my understanding, we have to install AAM as a standalone system and then migrate the users to new AAM

RE: Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

but if we want to upgrade existing hardware based MM 5.2 to AAM then we have to prepare new physical hardware to AAM or there is a way to upgrade it on the existing servers ?

RE: Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

No easy way with existing servers unless you want to Stage/Build/Test/Program and populate subscriber information all in one go. I'd definitely recommend new hardware, or run it in VMWare.

RE: Modular Messaging 5.2 upgrade/migrate to Aura Messaging

If you have 8800 servers or above you can use the same hardware but then it becomes a task to wipe them and reload and program all in one swoop
