Exchange 2003 Routing Group Master flaky RRS feed

  • Question


  • We have an Exchange 2003 SP2 environment consisting of five Routing Groups. Each Routing Group has two Routing Group Connectors and one Routing Group Master.

    The RGM in one of our sites is experiencing hardware issues and is rebooting once in a while.

    We want to ensure that there are no problems with mail delivery. Do we need to change the Routing Group Master to another server, or will this automatically happen?

  • The results are more likely to match your expectations if you select a new routing group master yourself.

    It won't happen automatically.
