Subject:        Email Migration - A Case Study
Presenter:      Ski Kacoroski

This talk covers the lessons learned while migrating 2500 users from 
Communigate Pro to the Zimbra 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.
