Migrated to new Exchange 2000 server, now AD users don't automatically point to it in some cases....
Posted on 2006-07-24
I had an old MS Exchange 2000 server (BEFP1) which was doing a lot of other tasks as well and was starting to fail. So I bought and setup a new Exchange 200 server (BEFP2) to offload the mail to. I got it all configured and working and migrated all the mail accounts to it using the AD users and Computers snapin, then Exchange Tasks -> Move Mailbox feature. All worked fine. The problem is that this morning when people got to work some called down and said they couldn't get into Outlook. I saw that in the Mail icon within Control Panel that the profile was still pointing to BEFP1. I changed it to BEFP2 and all was well. However, I am a bit concerned about this. How can I make sure that all accounts will automatically see this new server? Some computers logged in and saw the new server automatically and had no idea we even had a new server, by the way. Thanks in advance!
