Turn off Hub Transport on Exchange 2010 and activate Transport Role on Exchange 2013

    Question

  • I have recently installed Exchange Server 2013 on a 2012 R2 server to replace Exchange 2010 on a 2008 R2 server. I have migrated all mailboxes, installed certificates, set up autodiscover and now I think I am ready to turn off the Hub Transport Role on my 2010 Exchange server so I can take it offline. What is the best way to turn off Hub Transport on Exchange 2010 and turn on that role/services on Exchange 2013?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Well, its already turned on in the 2013 server!

    Do you mean for handling internet mail?

    You can use the same send connector - just add the 2013 server as a source server and remove the 2010.

    For inbound, create receive connectors that match the config of any 2010 ones and point MX and any SMTP gateways you use to the 2013 server (and don't forget any firewall rules/NAT)
