Dear all,

I've got 3 exchange servers which are located in "First Administrative Group", few days before I created another administrative group named "AG1" and now I would like to move one of my Exchange server from "First Administrative Group" to "AG1", however I won't have any idea on how to do it.  Please kindly give me some advise.  Both Exchange Server and AD are running 2003 version and it is in native mode.
