NetIQ Significantly Expedites Migration to Exchange 2000 with Release of Exchange Migrator 2.0

New Features Reduce Migration Time; Provide Extensive Automation; Add International Language Support

Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of e-business infrastructure management software, today announced the availability of Exchange Migrator 2.0, part of NetIQ's Migration Suite, designed to help customers more easily re-organize their Exchange organizations. Exchange Migrator adds support for scheduled operations windows, allowing IT administrators to specify the timeframes during which migration tasks are automatically started and stopped; enables two-way synchronization of public folder data for faster, more accurate replication of Exchange environments; and supports international versions of the Exchange platform.

Exchange Migrator streamlines and automates many of the otherwise labor-intensive tasks IT administrators face when consolidating separate Exchange 5.5 environments, or migrating from Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2000. With a user-friendly Wizard driven interface, Exchange Migrator automates the transfer of mailboxes, distribution lists, public folders and custom recipients between Exchange organizations or sites.

"Exchange Migrator is designed to meet the migration needs of the world's largest companies," said Tom Kemp, senior vice president of Products at NetIQ. "We're providing a solution that's as effective for corporations seeking to unify disparate Exchange 5.5 environments - sometimes necessitated by a reorganization, merger or acquisition, for example - as it is for those now ready to move fully to Exchange 2000."

Exchange Migrator also provides flexibility and customization through open, scriptable interfaces called ActiveScript triggers, automating a wide variety of complex migration tasks specific to a customer's environment. Before, during and after migration, Exchange Migrator maintains data security levels by preserving calendar and public folder permissions, and delivers extensive reporting on the Exchange systems involved.

Availability and Pricing

Exchange Migrator 2.0 is available immediately. The software is priced at $600 per 100-user pack. It can also be purchased as part of the NetIQ Migration Suite at $1200 per 100-user pack. The NetIQ Migration Suite consists of Domain Migration Administrator, Configuration Assessor, NetIQ NetWare Migrator and Server Consolidator.
