Moving single Exchange 2016 instance to a new server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    My current goal is to move a single instance of Exchange 2016 to a new server. Most of what I have read online deals with migration of databases from one server to another or from an instance of 2010/2013 to 2016. I have done many Exchange installs, upgrades, moves, migrations, etc.. but Exchange 2016 is new to me and I don't want to cause any problems in the current environment during this move.

    I would be very appreciative if someone could point me to some documentation or the like.

  • Hi

    Best would be to install the new server, install the cert and assign services and then configure all your urls.

    Once done, start with mailbox moves etc. Dont forget to point your dns to the new server.

  • Hi,

    Exchange 2016 is similar to Exchange 2013, you can refer to the migration steps from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016.

  • Thank you for the URL to the installation information for installing Exchange. Do you happen to have a link to a document that outlines the migration process from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016 please?

    If you have any problems during migration, welcome back to TechNet forum.
