Remove Front end exchange server and connectors
Posted on 2007-03-28
EX01 - Exchange Server 2003 Front End Server (Old front end server)
EX02 -Exchange Server 2003 Front End Server (new and current front end server)
EX03 -Exchange Server 2003 Back End Server
Issue: The old front end server EX01 is an old Dell unit which is unstable, its a DC & GC and runs a Calendar connector, notes connector and its a bridgehead server. If the server goes down we loose the ability to check users availablility in Outlook calendar and its causing issues as its unstable. The last IT guys who installed the new frontend server didnt finish the job. I would like to dcpromo the server, remove exchange and transfer the connectors, then take it offline. What plan of attack should i have ? and how?
