Hello EE,

Heres a doozy for yall. We are trying to go native with Exchange 2003 and have one Exchange 5.5 server left to remove. At the same time where wanting to get rid of the SRS server which happenes to be our first Exchange 2003 Server. I have completed KB # 822450 up to step 21, this envolves mainly the Exchange 5.5 server and removing its roles. But I am unsure as to what I need to do about the SRS server since it was the first exchange 2003 server in the mix. Thanks for all your help!

You need to replicate the system folders to the existing E2k3 server and also change the OAB, RUS and Routing Master roles before removing the old e2k3 server.
