Exchange 2007 migration - alerts to pagers / cell phones

We have a client at the University of Pennsylvania to thank for the idea of paging administrators as phases complete in a calendar migration.

Those of you who are familiar with SuExchange2007.exe will see the "Configure Alerts" button in the upper right hand corner, along with a tiny cell phone icon.

Clicking here brings up this box:

With fairly straight-forward options and input fields.

Why would you want this? If you're asking you've never been through a migration.

This is going to be great for administrators because:

  • Now they can move from their workstation and make sure everything ELSE is going on

  • Now they can keep tabs on the process from home or late night pizza

  • Now they can keep others informed about migration status
