Company with two locations and two Exchange Servers (2003) - Closing location and moving Exchange Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently our company has two locations (A and B) with plans to close location A. Each location has the following configuration (current configuration was setup by previous IT Admin):

    Location A – has a Windows 2003 server and the following are installed on the server:  Exchange 2003, DC, DNS, AD, and DHCP.

    Location B - has a Windows 2003 server and the following are installed on the server:  Exchange 2003, DC, DNS, AD, and DHCP.

    Currently all emails are received first by server in Location B and routed accordingly to mailboxes.

    Mailboxes for users in location A reside on server in Location A and mailboxes for users in Location B reside on server in Location B.

    Under Exchange System Manager we have 2 servers.

    System Manager>Administrative Groups>First Administrative Groups>Servers >

    Server 1 – Queues, First Storage Group, Protocols

    Server 2 - Queues, First Storage Group, Protocols

     

    We plan to close Location A and I need to move the server in Location A to location so we can still access Mailboxes for users that were based out of location A when needed. Once I move the server from Location A to location B, do I need to make any specific configuration to Exchange settings?

    Thanks….B

  • Are they in the same routing group?  If not, you may want to change the routing group.  Other than that, I can't think of anything.

    I think so. 

    Under the System Manager>Administrative Group>Routing Groups I have the following settings.

    Routing Group>First Routing Group

    >Connectors – This is blank

    >Members – which has the following:

    Server 1 (location B) with Server Type as “Master”

    Server 2 (location A) with Server Type as “Member”

  • Looks like you should have no problems then.
