Moving SMTP Connector to Exchange 2003
Posted on 2004-08-06
Hello there -
I've put in my new Ex03 Server that is sitting happily in my domain and co-existing with my old Ex00 server. The idea is to decommission the '00 server and nuke it.
So far, i've set off all the public folder replication and that's going well. I've moved/rehomed a couple of mailboxes to the new server and that seems to all be going well.
The last bit in the jigsaw in probably going to be the SMTP Connector thing ... I seem to remember this was a nightmare in 5.5, removing the old one and such like - however, I imagine things have improved - but I'm no expert here (a 'jack of all trades') ... is it just a case of pointing the SMTP connector 'bridgehead' server to the new machine ?
Could you remind how to move the SMTP connector the new machine, so my new server takes over the delivery and sending of all mail.
Incidently, do I need the SMTP service running on the new machine ? Should only one SMTP service be running in the domain (still confused about this) ...
Have some points for my laziness ... thanks
