SBS 2003 to server 2008, and exchange 2010

    Question

  • Hi, I have a problem.  I am replacing SBS 2003 with Server 2008 and installing Exchange 2010 on it.  All was setup and looking good, then I went and  transfered a couple of mailboxes to the 2010 exchange database location.  The people whom I transfered over could not send or recieve email.  I installed another send connector and pointed it to the 2010 exchange server.  I did not configure a recieve connector, tring just to do one thing at a time.  I went on the persons computer and test it and the mail sent properly, but I could not recieve any.  I went bak to the server and when I opened the EMC all I only had  Organization configuration with Hub transport in it, which has no settings in it, and reciptient configuration with mailbox, distrubution group, and mail contact, and tools.  I need to get the full console since it won't let me con figure anything.  How can I transfer the mailboxes back to the other database, it gives me no option or how can I get the console to look normal so I can create a recieve connector.

  • Actually, I would first look at whether the account you're using has all the required rights.

  • Is Exchange 2010 in the same active directory forest and Exchange organization as the SBS 2003 server?

    Please list everything you've done to set this up.

  • yes both are in the same domain. just going to replace the 2003 sbs server with the new server 2008 and adding exchange 2010.  basiclly it is just as I said in the problem that I have in the original question.  the server is working good it is just the exchange after I made those changes to send email.

  • Validate your routing group connectors (one for each direction) are configured properly, or add them if not already present.

  • Get-RoutingGroupConnector

    Set-RoutingGroupConnector

    Don't make me Google that for you.

  • I have done this.  I keep getting the response:  Get-routinggroupconnector is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.  I thought I was doing something wrong but you, show it is right.  Microsoft also shows the same syntex.  When I type in get-help that worked fine along with a few other commands.  Also when I connect to EMC right click on organization configuration, go to modify configuration domain controller, go to specify domain controller, click browse I get the error the term Get-OrganizationalUnit is not reconnized as the name of a cmdlet, funtion, script file or operable program.

  • Are you running this on the Exchange 2010 server using the Exchange Management Shell, not Windows PowerShell?

  • yes exchange management shell.
    I'm thinking I corrupted exchange some how.  I'm going to try to uninstall everything except the mailboxes.  I do this Sunday and post what happened.  If you think of anything else please post, thanks

  • Hi, thanks for all your help.  I created a new administror account and grt it the rights to the schema admin and organization manager, and everyting works.  So I took out those rights in administrator account that I was using and restarted the server, then I put those rights back in and everything works again.  The main administrator account must have gotten corrupted some how!  Thanks, again for all your help.

  • Hi,

    The administrator should be a member of Recipient Management, Server Management and Organization Management

    Add-RoleGroupMember "Recipient Management" -Member Administrator
    Add-RoleGroupMember "Server Management" -Member Administrator
    Add-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management" -Member Administrator
