How to script multiple mailbox moves in mixed Ex2003 - Ex5.5

Need to script multiple mailbox moves from Ex 5.5 to Ex2003 sp1 servers in
different AGs in mixed mode. Have been using sample in December issue of
Exchange 2003 SDK - which works fine for SINGLE mailbox moves after the
cdoexm and maildsmx hotfix was applied. Trouble is that each move does the
Ex 5.5 DS/IS patch check which can take over 5 minutes per mailbox move in
our environement. This is an unacceptable length of time to add to each
mailbox move, especially if the mailbox is small.

The ETW GUI allows multiple mailbox moves with a single one time Ex5.5 DS/IS
patch check. How can I do this in vbscript?

I looked in maildsmx.dll and it has functions similar to cdoexm.dll for a
mailbox move. But can't find ANY reference to these in MSDN. Is this the
dll the GUI is using?

There is a reg entry that will set the DS/IS check as successful in affect
skipping the check function. Please see Microsoft for the correct reg entry.
