Moving Objects Between Administrative Groups


Topic Last Modified: 2005-04-21

You can move some of the objects in an administrative group to a different group. However, there are other objects that you cannot move.

Objects that you can move between administrative groups are as follows:

  • System policies

  • Public folders

  • Routing group member servers (native mode only)

  • Mailboxes in Exchange Server 2003 SP1 and later. It is best to move mailboxes across administrative groups in mixed mode under certain circumstances; for example, during site consolidation.

Objects that you cannot move between administrative groups are as follows:

  • Servers

  • Containers

You can move objects only between containers of the same type. For example, you can move a system policy from one system policy container to another system policy container in a different administrative group, but you cannot move a system policy into a public folder container. This type of action is blocked by default.

For detailed instructions, see How to Move Objects Between Administrative Groups.

When you are moving or copying objects between administrative groups, click Refresh to see the object in the new container.
