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.

noteNote:
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.

    —or—

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