How to decommission an Exchange 2007 Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed a second Exchange 2007 server on the same subnet with all Exchange roles installed. I moved over all mailboxes to it and all Server IP addresses that are allowed to send emails through it. SSL certificate is installed on the new server. In order to decommission the old server, am I correct when I assume the following?:

    Open EMC

    Navigate to Organization Configuration -> Send Connectors

    Right Click the Send Connector -> Properties

    Click Source Server tab

    Remove the old server and add the new server and click apply

    Set firewall rules

    Shutdown old server

    Where are all the distribution lists stored in exchange? Will the new server know to manage email for thoses?
