Test Exchange box
Posted on 2006-06-06
Ok time for the dumb admin question. Sorry, about this but I just need to verify my thoughts
I have a 2003 AD domain, with an Exchange 2003 Enterprise server. It is not running all the service packs, but I am leary of upgrading it to the curren service packs at this time. Daddy always said if it ain't broke don't fix it (there is some truth to that).
But to my question. I have a VP who wants to test out some new PDA's and he wants SP2 on the exchange box. But since I haven't had a chance to test it on our system and there is some other testing I want to do with different backup clients. What I am wondering is I can setup a new exchanger server and have it point to a different SMTP ip address and such and have it on the same network to do all this testing on and it won't effect the current server, Correct?
