What does resource mailbox wizard do?
Posted on 2004-08-05
I am in the middle of adding a new Exchange 2003 server to forest with 2 exchange 5.5 servers.
I have 2 domains that trust each other in different buildings (1 1/2 miles apart connected via wireless bridge) each with it's own Exchange 5.5 server.
Server A is is HQ building and serves 18 people in building and about 30 over OWA. It also pulls in and sends mail via PoP3 app on another server which scans it for spam and viruses (virii?)
Server B is in production warehouse, serves 35 people localy.
I intend to migrate Server A to the 2003 once I get it all stable. I will probably move other member servers from Server A's domain to the new domain once it is set up and stable.
This set up works pretty well and has for years, except OWA in 5.5 as you know kinda sucks.
I am up to the part in installing Exchange 2003 where you have to run ADC connector services thing, specifically resource mailbox wizard. I do not understand exactly what this step will do. I am not quite ready to migrate to the Exchange 2003 server
Will resource mailbox wizard move anything off of existing 5.5 servers?
Will it mess *anything* up in regards to the functioning 5.5 servers?
Any other info / advice would be greatly appreciated since this is my first serious attempt at doing AD.
