2009 (3 months)

Context: All the servers and data needed to be transferred to the new building.

At the same time, a new folder structure with the required security had to be created because Gralex had been split into two entities: Sagrex and Holcim.

The backlog on this ongoing project had to be dealt with in a timely fashion. 3 months to fulfil the task.

Outcome: The advanced scripting of the processes resulted in a shorter timeframe needed to complete the migration.


  • Analysis of the processes
  • Meetings with the different departments of Gralex to discuss the approach and plan the server and data migration
  • Data Storage migration
  • Active Directory migration
  • Exchange server migration
  • Automating the processes via scripting

Environments: Windows Server 2000 & 2003

Tools: Hyena, Active Directory, Exchange

Technologies: VBScript, VBA, batch files, PowerShell
