[log in to unmask]" type="cite"> Would it be possible to make the exchange calendar available prior to migrating the old calendar? I ask because some folks (like me for instance) have been avoiding using the Oracle calendar due to it’s general kludginess, and the knowledge that it was going to be replaced. So for me, and a lot of folks I imagine, a clean start would be fine.

We are currently focusing our effects on moving all calendar users at the same time, since there is no interoperability between Oracle Calendar and Exchange. Since the migration of calendar data will take a day or two, it needs to happen over a weekend. We are targeting the weekend of either July 25/26 or August 1/2 for this initial migration.
We were overly optimistic about the timeframe for the remaining tasks, and need to move the migration further out, to sometime after this summer. We're discussing timeframes with many customer groups, to determine when would be an acceptable time for calendar migration.
But I wanted you all to know that the migration will be delayed from this original timeline - we'll provide more specifics as we have them. If you have strong opinions about when a calendar migration couldn't happen for your users, please let me know (current most likely times are sometime in October or winter break).
In the meantime, if you are available, we are still having the Collaborative IT meeting on Tuesday July 28th to discuss and demo the Exchange environment in more detail.
