How to uninstall Exchange 2016 if required

    Question

  • Hi All,

    Pertaining to my other thread - https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/ec84861d-d293-4d19-aea6-21a0976ca3ab/need-help-desperately-on-my-exchange-2013-issue-pls?forum=exchangesvrsecuremessaging

    Since I am now planning to move my mailboxes to new exchange 2016 from exchnage 2013 this weekend, wondering what should be my approach?

    Plus in case of roll back plan since I'll be taking snapshot of exchange and AD how do I uninstall Exchange 2016 from environment? and bring back to my earlier position?

    TIA


    Thanks, Blason R

  • Hi Blason R,

    If you just want to move Mailboxes from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016, we can use EAC to move mailboxes.

    If you want to migrate from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016 then uninstall the old server, we should move all mailboxes, databases, arbitration mailbox and public folder from the old server, if there has custom receive connectors in the old server, we also need move it to the new Exchange server, at last we should apply a valid certificate to this new exchange server. If you want to uninstall Exchange, we suggest you to use control panel to uninstall it.
