How to Move Objects Between Administrative Groups


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-04

You can move some of the objects in an administrative group to a different administrative group. This procedure outlines how to move objects such as system policies or public folders between administrative groups.

Objects that you can move between administrative groups are:

  • 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.

However, there are other objects that you cannot move. Objects that you cannot move between administrative groups are:

  • Servers

  • Containers

You can move objects only between containers of the same type.

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

  • Cut the system policy or public folder from the source container, and paste it into the target container.


  • Drag the system policy or public folder from the source container to the target container.
