I HAVE JUST INSTALLED A CLUSTERED EXCHANGE SERVER 2003 AS A MEMBER SERVER TO MY EXISTING EXCHANGE ORGANISATION .

NOW MY MAIN AIM IS TO MOVE ALL MAIL BOXES TO THE NEW CLUSTERED SERVER AND SHUT DOWN THE FIRST SERVER FOR SAY ABOUT A MONTH AND SO. AFTER KEEPING THE CLUSTERED SERVER UP FOR A MONTH IF EVERY THING GOES SMOOTH THEN I WILL UNINSTALL THE FIRST SERVER FROM MY ORGANISTATION.

CAN ANYBODY PROVIDE ME WITH ALL THE DETAIL STEPS TO HOW TO DELEGATE CONTROL OVER THE EXCHANGE ORGANISATION AND ALL ITS COMPONENTS FROM MY FROM MY FIRST SERVER TO MY NEWLY INSTALLED SERVER SO THAT EVERY THING GOES SMOOTHLY EVEN IF I SHUT DOWN MY FIRST SERVER WITHOUT UNINSTALLING IT.


I WILL BE VERY MUCH GREATFUL TO ALL OF U WHO EVER TRIES TO HELP ME ON THIS ISSUE.

If you shutdown the old server for a month, then you will have a very sick Exchange environment by the time that you bring the server back online again.
Exchange servers talk to each other and replicate information. If you want to test things by shutting a server down then it should be for a day or two at most. I would never recommend shutting a server down for a month.
