Next Meeting: Email Migration Tips and Tricks

Date: March 10th, 2011
Time: 7pm
Place: EE1 Building (Electrical Engineering)
Room 403
University of Washington Campus
Subject: Email Migration Tips and Tricks
Presenter: Ski Kacoroski

This talk covers the lessons learned while migrating 2500 users to a new email server for the Northshore School District (NSD). Email server migration consists of data and process inventory and clean up, selecting the new email server, initial data migration, running a pilot test, final data migration, and post migration tasks. This presentation will cover these aspects, what worked and did not work, and what should have been done differently to make the migration run smoother using examples from migrating the email server at NSD.


Chris “Ski” Kacoroski has been a systems administrator since 1982, worked at the Northshore School District since 2002, and a member of LOPSA’s board since 2009. When not dealing with technology, he enjoys spending time with his family and volunteering for King County Search and Rescue.
