I may have cross posted this message incorrectly, but was not sure
where it should be located. Sorry about that. I have installed a new
exchange 2000 server into an existing exchange 5.5 site. All
mailboxes, public folders, free/busy, and OAB have been replicated to
the new server. I need to know what to look at next. I have seen the
knowledge base articles 284148 152959 189286, etc. but still am not
sure what the next logical thing would be. It appears that all mail
transfer is working properly on the new server, so I thkn that the old
one is ready to go. One last thing, I need to do this in a way that
would be transparent to the users. They have also all logged in and
are working on the new server.

Thanks in advance,

In this case I would think you next logical step would be to shutdown the
Exchange 5.5 server.

I generally suggest that you shutdown the E55 server until you are sure that
you do not need it anymore.

Then, once you are sure, follow these instructions to remove the E55 server
from your E2K org, and move your E2K org to native mode.

Hope that helps.

Exchange Servers Admin >> installed exch2k to existing exch 5.5 site and want to get rid of 5.5 server. what next? Thanks for your reply. I do have one more related question: at an
earlier stage of the migration I was working on the telephone with
Microsoft support and they helped me move the connectors, etc. and get
the mail flow working on the new (E2K) server IP and all. When we
started this, we assumed since the 5.5 server would no longer be used
after the mailboxes were moved, that we wouldn't worry about mailflow
on that old (Ex5.5) machine any longer and just send all mail via
Firewall rules to the new server's IP. Mail does not flow between the
two servers in the site, and all of the mailboxes are moved to the new
E2K server. While we were working on that mail flow to route it to
the new server, they told me to stop the ADC service. Since that ADC
service has been stopped, there have been quite a few new mailboxes
created, as well as some new public folders. My question is, when I
remove the 5.5 server from the admin group using exchange
administrator, and will need the ADC service started to force
replication, Will I need to edit the RecipientCA and the PublicCA to
ensure that no data goes back and forth on those to make sure that I
dont lose anything that has happened on the E2K server since I stopped
the ADC service (has been over a month)? Please let me know what you
think about this, so I don't start that service and cause myself more
grief.


Thanks again.

Part of this question involves repointing your ADC connection agreements to
use the SRS on port 379. That way you will still be replicating into
Exchange 5.5, even if the 5.5 server isn't online (the SRS will accept the
updates).

Hope that helps.
